bowriter that reminds me of a big, old oak tree I walked by in a thicket right next to the foot travel road and parking area in a rather large and popular tract of land in Yanahli. I thought to myself, everyone who hunts here probably walks far past that tree, as I myself walked far past it. I bet I could kill a deer there if I wanted to.


I think i may have tried that same oak a time or two....lol

If public land is so good, why do most of it have no or restricted gun either-sex seasons?

1-Biological foundation for population control.

Just because it is public land does not mean it is good. I don't know who said it was good. In most cases, it is just available. So, in order to build the population to a biologically sound number, does are protected.

Makes perfect sense to me.

Ok I know a spot on cheatham wma that I have killed several deer from and a friend of mine killed a 4.5 year old 9 point there and I can almost see my camper. I was given some sound advice from a older hunter there and Randy( the TWRA officer) most of the best spots are closer to the road than you would think. I hunt another spot there that I can smell food cooking at the gas station and hear all the BS out front. I always love it when I shoot my rifle and I hear someone say that scared the **** out of me

At cheatham the farther you walk the closer you are to another road or private property

Do not hunt that spot by the store. I have had that reserved for many years. I killed a very nice 9-pt there that had been bedding behind the store.

repeat...That is my spot. Randy gave it to me.

The group I hunted with all hunts off 250 and we always have several deer even after the EHD out break. And I know none are more than 200 yd from the road. We only hunt public land.

The older I get the closer I hunt to the road. Not because of the things someone posted earlier, but because after I learned what to look for. I have hunted a spot on public land several times since archery opened. I have seen 6 different bucks only one shooter. Its funny no matter how many bucks I have killed I have one make a fool out of me every now and then. I had a upper 130's 9pt at 15 yards the other afternoon and couldn't close the deal.
