Although I'm on a lease I still hunt public on occasion.

I hunt public about 50% of the time these days.

With public land, I've had decent luck through the first week of muzzleloader. After that it's been horrible. The economy got the couple that use to let me hunt so it's looking like public land will be my only option. With the exception of a doe on my in-laws land.

Hunted only public land last year and about 50/50 the year before. I saw deer just about every time I hunted last year which was more than some of the private land spots I have hunted. It is harder to kill on public but I feel it means more when you do kill.

I love the challenge of hunting whitetail and turkey on public land. In my experience, hunting success on public land is extremely gratifying and provides a special sense of accomplishment.

That being said, I also have a lease.

Public land for me, I could never afford to lease enough land to hunt all the diverse habitats that I get to enjoy on public land.

I've hunted public quite a bit, and looks like all that homework from the past will be put to use this season. Working on trying to get a small track to lease. Maybe it will come through. If not, I'll be in a tree somewhere \:\)

I hunt a lease almost the whole season, hardly hunt government land even though I see a lot better quality deer on the government. I ask myself every year why I pay to lease. Come to the conclusion because the private land is easier access. We live 70 miles from our lease and people trespass and hunt it to death when we are not there through the week. The government area I hunt rarely sees a soul, its a long hard walk to get to it, therefore I see better quality I guess because they can get some age.

I exclusively hunt public land. Can't afford a lease. The land I hunt is not overcrowded, I guess because of the 9 point rule and thickets, but there's some nice deer out there.
