Who can hunt right out their backdoor and who has to drive whenever you want to hunt?

I’m fortunate, I have state land right behind the house.

I can although it spoils the kids terribly lol. Daddy why do I have to sit in the woods when it's cold when we can shoot one off the deck! Ahh today's youth.

I drive an hour one way to my spot, if I could find a private farm to hunt near me it would be great

Sort of..its my future mother in laws house though. When I'm staying there I go out the door and right up into the woods. Can also shoot guns in the front yard

Yep, have to walk 200yds, then no roads for miles. I won't shoot them in my yard, too easy, even for me.

When my son was little he came out back and started peeing in front of my wife. When she flipped out he says "But this is where Dad goes". :rofl:

Fifty minutes for me to reach our property,fifteen minutes to drive in, five hundred yards to the stand.
Worth every second...But do wish it was closer.

One day my daughter comes home and walks into her bedroom. She sees the sliding glass door is open then looks down. I am prone on the floor with the 17/223 on the bipod aiming out the door. She says "Ummm what are you doing?". I say "Hold yer ears". BAM!

Three sides for me as well - back door, front door, bedroom window. I'm lucky that I can hunt the farm that surrounds my house. But I usually make the 10 minute ride to the farm I have hunted since I was a kid. While I can pee off my deck, I usually walk across the driveway - wife doesn't like the yellow snow that close to the house.

I used to have deer right in my backyard, now I have to walk about 300 yds behind the house to get to them. I still have deer on my property but not like I used to. I still drive 20 mins or so to my spots

Used to cut firewood to be able to hunt a piece down the road. I only hunted my 8 acres for doe meat. Now that I'm getting a little worn out, I gave up down the road and only hunt my propery. I hunt the far corner, still sit in a tree...lol

I can and although I have in the past I have never shot anything except rabbits and ground hogs. I prefer the 5 min drive to a 10acre horse farm or the 12min drive to either Big Brook or Holmdel. I have taken many a deer in the county park system over the years, still pretty close to home but I miss the big woods of NYS and will be going next season for a three day hunt.

I can hunt and fish out the back and side doors. Not the front, roads a little close. I'll leave the peeing off the deck to the men, but I am sure spoiled that I just walk up to the house to take a bathroom break while hunting.
