    About 95% private. That goes for deer, turkey and predators. Most of my bear hunting is on public.

    I have a lease on private land about 153 acres and still find myself hunting public land the majority of the time. I let my cameras tell me where to hunt
    I once got a small deer discount from the butcher

    Used to have 50 acres in Bloomsbury and 460 acres in Blairstown, now history I am relegated to hunting public land for the past 2 seasons. Never had to lock my stands in with cable and chain and surveillance camera's and still loose equiptment. Bow season is tolerable but once firearm starts it seems like I find more reasons not to get out. Deer sightings now are fewer than ever before on public land. You can scout till you turn purple but if the deer aren't there it doesn't matter. I now choose to hunt New York bow and firearm. On the bright side look at all the money I save by not buying all the extra permits I used to. On the other hand I'm gonna miss the guy who walks in late and sets up 40 yards from you and gives you the salute when he realizes you are there like it's your fault.

    I'm lucky enough to have private land to hunt very close to my work. I stay off public land so I don't put any more pressure on the folks that aren't as lucky as I am. Jmo....
