Losing My Prime Private Land Spot


Recommended Posts

I taught myself to hunt when I was 17 behind my now in-laws house. I have shot about 10-11 deer in my hunting career and only one was shot somewhere else. Its the only piece of private land that I hunt and now I am losing it due to the in-laws moving out of state.. My favorite treestand has to come down and find a home somewhere else now. We all have that one spot, our honey hole that we consistently keep revisiting. I could not over hunt that spot. It was a small 7 acre parcel surrounded by development. I'm going to be sad to leave that spot, but I guess now I will hunt it until I can't anymore. This will definitely be the last season there, so sorry, but every deer that walks in front of me in that stand is taking an arrow. :rofl:

 

Guess I need to start learning some public land. Luckily there is enough around me where I live.

That sucks but on the bright side I think you will find hunting more exciting. Yes I have my favorite spot but moving around, looking for new spots and sitting over new area, instead looking at the same thing and same deer, gets my blood flowing. Get a climber or climbing sticks and have fun!!

Definitely going to start exploring hard come March, thinking about going the saddle route as I have a pet peeve about carrying a bunch of stuff with me into the woods haha

Yeah fortunately I only ever see a couple trucks here and there in the public land around my house. So hoping to explore that more this year. Get in there deep. There is a couple good swamps in the valley of the surrounding hills on the land.

Hunt public, hunt county properties, join a club.

Was never a fan of clubs.(for deer) Reminds me of my volunteer firefighting days. (No offense to anymore still volunteering. I miss it a lot. Just not the drama)

Going to try my luck at finding a good spot on public.
