How many here hunt on private land in relation to public..I myself have hunted on private land from 10 to 18 years old.. then public for about 3 then back to private for about 3 now back to public .. I hunt basically the pequest... anybody else?
I hunted the family farm for 30 plus years . If you call a 550 acres alpha field with a pond , apple trees and woods hunting.
I went to private land in West Milford when they cut 98 % of the woods down on the farm. That i hunted for about 5 more years until i moved to South Central Jersey.
I have hunted the pine lands for about 6 years now and still going ( public)
I AM SUCH AN IDIOT I NEVER KNEW HOW GOOD THE FARM WAS AND ASSUMED IT WAS ALWAYS EASY TO KILL DEER IN 4 HOURS
I hunted private for 15 yrs and now I hunt just public. to be honest I been hunting over 40 yrs and really don't care if I get one or not. at this stage of the game I am just happy to get out in the woods and enjoy mother nature .
I have hunted 29 seasons now. I hunted only public land until 3 years ago. now I only hunt private land. Not sure if I could ever deer hunt on public land again. Had some bad experiences in Jackson deer hunting
private is nice but...you think your the only one to hunt a private piece. i bet there always will be quick drives and people looking for there lost pets. ive found arrows and gut piles. it seams the shady people that do this know how to and know when your not around. just like deer hunting they pattern you and take liberties. ive had people sneek into my bait piles that i set up for family members. i dont know who taught these people but they will probly always be like this. i just ran into a person that says if he finds a stand he will hunt it as long as nobody is in it. how about asking first. ?
