I am going out tomorrow, last chance. My new daughter is due to arrive any day now. I am heading to percy preist WMA as it is near my house. I have been out several times and not yet seen a deer. feeling like it may be pointless to buy a liscense next year if I dont have private land to hunt. Any body got any good spots at Percy they would be willing to share?? O yeah it is my first season...so i could be doing it wrong.

Don't give up just yet. Spend the off season inquiring about hunting locations starting as soon as season closes. Don't wait until just before next season opens and expect much luck.

I live very close as well but haven't hunted it in a couple of years. Good luck.

.....maybe I'll try again someday when I have some land of my own. Been out 8 times this season, never saw a deer. I am thinking this public land is just over hunted and too close to the city. Besides knocking on doors how do I find lease land? I keep to myself mostly so I don't know too many people to ask "word of mouth". Obviously for next year. How much do people usually pay?

Plenty of other WMA's within driving distance. would not give up on public land. Just do a lot of off season scouting. to me that's half the fun. It just takes a little time.

I'd check the hunting section of the newspaper for potential openings and may run my own add. I'd also hit any of the sporting goods stores leaving info on their bulletin boards of my desires. I'd also hit any sportshows, etc. in the surrounding area.

I killed my biggest buck to date on public land this year. Public land deer are a little more educated since they get more hunting pressure. Scouting is worth it's weight in gold, but you have to start early and it doesn't stop once the season starts. Good luck and stay after it. Remember, if it was easy it would be called killing and not hunting!
