Tips for Deer Hunting on Public Land

Article provides tips and ideas for successful whitetail deer hunting on public land, state and national forests, and wildlife management areas.

Deer hunting on public land can be tough for numerous reasons. First, in most areas hunters have no control over where other hunters will be meaning that picking a stand can difficult. Second, boundary lines for public hunting areas are notorious (at least in my area) for being poorly marked. And third, large numbers of hunters can spook deer onto other land and generally change their travel patterns.

Before hunting on any public hunting area be certain to get a map of the area and familiarize yourself with the boundaries of the public hunting lands. If possible, scout the area on foot to find property lines. Often private landowners will do a better job posting their adjoining private property than the state will in marking the public land. Seeking difficult to reach corners of the public hunting property where other hunters are unlikely to put in the effort to get to can result in a quiet hunting location. By hunting these remote corners and getting to them early in the morning, you also allow yourself to have an opportunity to take deer that other hunters are running toward you when they enter the woods.

Other ways to succeed in public hunting areas is to scout the other hunters. If the parking areas lend themselves to easy entrance into the land consider hunting near the parking area. If an old road allows access deep into the public hunting property, consider hunting a few hundred yards off of the road where deer might escape from the vast army of other hunters making noise coming down the road. Be careful not to pick an easy to get to location or you may find yourself surrounded by other hunters with the same idea.

While certainly the best time to hunt is anytime that you can, public hunting areas may be hunted best of difficult days. If you can only take a few days to hunt, try to hunt on days that are extremely cold, unusually hot, or pouring down the rain. Other hunters are likely to skip these days and this might give you a better chance to score.

No matter how grim the prospects for taking a big buck or other deer may seem, someone is going to kill deer on the public land and it might as well be you. Get out there and hunt.
