    POLL: do you hunt deer on private land or public land?

    I am surprised a poll like this hasn't been posted yet (I just did a search and didn't find one). The thread on the diminishing deer herd in NJ got me thinking about this.

    Think about your time in the field hunting deer (deer hunting only, and consider the amount of time you spend in the field):

    Who hunts 100% of your time on private property?
    Who hunts 100% of your time on public property?

    I hunt both. I have been hunting the same couple public pieces for almost 20 years in zone 1 and 4, and I can honestly say I haven't noticed a big change in the herd. We still see tons of deer on our zone 1 and 4 public spots.

    Right at this very moment, There are people who are alive, simply because I did not want to go to jail that day.

    I have hunted my share of public and private over the years. I like to trophy hunt, so the public thing is not worth the hassle. Even the private ground hunting in Nj is not what it used to be.
    100% private ground

    Most years is about 50/50 public private throughout all seasons. This year I hunted mostly public during bow season since I was chasing a certain buck and then mostly private after that.
