Any time I'm hunting public land, WMA, whatever, I ALWAYS make sure I'm parked at least an hour before I plan to walk in.
Not just parked, but have my tree stand sitting ready to strap on, pack ready, weapon ready.
At the first hint of a headlight, I'm a vapor trail.

Almost every time, I'm in there first.

Sleepy, but first.

I hunt public land exclusively, Cherokee National Forest. Matter of fact the 8-point I just killed Friday was taken in a spot where someone had already beat me there. I went hunting anyway, hoping I would run into them on the way in which I did. Made sure I was not hurting their hunting or them mine. It paid off big time for me, killed a very nice 4-1/2 year old 8-point. Point being, just because someone is hunting on or near where you might be, don't just give up, that deer may have came by you 1st. You wouldn't believe how many times I've had people come in on me, shot a deer near me or set up beside me and I still kill mature bucks year after year. Don't get frustrated, no matter what, stay put and tell yourself they'll leave before you will. It's public land, you have as much right to hunt there as they do, just be courteous to their position.

I decided to try my public land spot today to see if anyone one else was hunting it. Headed in at 4:30 and had a guy walk in 15 minutes after me.. flashed my light and he left. Seen 7 deer where he was standing.

Don't let other hunters worry you, just try to be there first.
