    Why gh your preachin to the choir? This was my second gun season spent on public land. Had numerous people walk in on me. Stop and stare at me like they were confused or something then proceed to right around me. Why people have to tromp around the morning of the opener is beyond me!

    Well that's simple, either they made that one trip there middle of summer to scout OR they were told that's a good area......and that spot oughta be right round here somewhere.....uh....sorry...maybe it's over here..........'er over there.....

    I think its personally how many folks just like to hunt
    they wait till first light so they can see and not get lost, and use hunting season as a scouting trip!
    with the hopes of being able to walk up on a buck
    many folks cannot sit still, and thus wander about clueless
    sad part about it is, many of these folks actually kill some slammers doing so
    further causing more guys to do it!

    I always hated how you can be in blaze orange head to toe, and some will walk almost on top of you like they cannot see you???
    just rude, or maybe they think you know more then they do
    like you must know its a good spot, so they want to hunt next to you!! thinking you did all the hard work and now they can just cheat off you???

    Hey bro. I have around 1200 acres I bow and deer hunt on. Different locations but total around 1200 acres. I live here in Ohio and know alot of areas for hunting but guess where I ended up at during the two day gun a couple weeks ago....Public land. Some of our buds got together and wanted to hunt together so we went into Public and we didnt want to deal with too many hunters so we went deep. Once we went deep in the woods Im here to tell you we never saw one hunter. My suggestion is to get a map of the public, find some back roads and go there. You will be surprised. A couple of nice bucks were brought out that day by some friends. The most important part is to get on those back roads. You will find it there.
    If there were 8 days in a week I would hunt 8 days

    I wouldn't give up on the local farmers that turned you down. Be friendly and ask when you don't plan to hunt. Once they see you are a local and are not having any luck with other places then maybe they will give you a shot. This time of year a lot of the regular hunters on their farms may have either filled their tags or are done hunting for the season. Build a rapport with them and maybe by this time next year you will have a place secured.
