Was thinking, maybe some people would be into trading some of "their" spots on public land. I know a few myself. But I'm still learning the WMA, lots of acreage and not enough time. but I do know a couple of spots I could share. Deer, turkey, or just squirrels, heck I have even seen a covey of quail out there.

It would be pretty tough for me to trade a private land hunt for a public land hunt. Too many unknown variables involved in hunting public land.

Not trying to knock on ur idea cat, just being realistic.

Oh I don't mean trading private for public. I mean if 2 people have their honey holes they know on the same or separate WMAs then they can trade spots. It wouldn't be the same as private land at all. Would be good for people wanting to learn some new hunting ground on public land. Just a thought though.

im on track with u now

I def enjoy hunting with people (especially on those mile long walks in 20 degree weather) and dont mind sharing some of my spots, but be careful who you share information with on public land. The minute you start opening your mouth about a good deer on public land is when your spot becomes everyone elses spot. I learned this lesson the hard way unfortunately.

oh I know, there are some spots I would not show anyone, gotta be careful on public land. I dont hardly mention road names except to other people I know who hunt the same WMA. but a good spot to just sit and see some deer, or a place where turkeys often roost, could be worth sharing. Again this is all just speculation...

Its happened to me twice now. One was a big deer I was on, and the other was one of my best shed hunting spots. Both people I considered to be friends and know well, both people have been in those spots and told other people about them thinking I didnt know they were there. Just a couple of hard lessons learned. I look at it like this, if i wouldnt hand em they keys to my house I wont tell em where my spots are.

Cat this is a good idea in theory, but I too have been burned on giving up a spot and that person then turning around and telling someone else or bringing them with them to hunt.

I have some private land now and my brother owns some too, so I mainly just bow hunt Priest anymore, maybe one or two ML hunts.

I may be willing to show you spot or two if you'd do that at Yanahli. I've never been toYanahli and have often thought about going sometime.

Good points made, guess it is not such a good idea. I havent been burned (yet) so I wouldn't have known, but makes sense, even a decent person could slip up and tell the wrong guy about a good spot on public land.
