My own - 146 acres. My son has 17 adjacent acres.

I always hunted someone else's land until I turned 62 years old, in 2016, when I was able to buy the place I had been hunting since 2000.

Very grateful to be so blessed.

Hunt: Whitetail deer, Turkey, squirrels.

60 Acres. 600 or so in the family all closely connected. Woods, hills, and meadows with a smattering of row crops . Just had a 3 yr old 8 point in the back yard. Mostly hunt squirrels and deer. Never caught the turkey bug. Coyotes are targets of opportunity.


Feel pretty well blessed in the playground department.

Run a couple head of cattle on 50 acres of pastures and woods. Lots of deer and turkey.

Here’s a pic of one of the stand sites when I planted this fall.

Met a 40X fan on this site that has a beautiful farm in the VA mountains. He hosts bench rest shoots in one of the barns. Great guy. Wish I lived closer so I could shoot with them.

I have 20 acres but have access to about 5000 acres of private and public land that is adjacent to my place. I shoot at least a deer a year on the home 20 not to mention countless squirrels, rabbits, fox and grouse.

I always use to hunt on private land my father-in-laws family farmed for over 50 years, it was in a trust. You know what they say, "A trust is made to be broken". The heirs got lawyers and were able to sell it, all houses now. Now I hunt mostly public land for squirrel, pheasant and deer, private for Turkey.

Here is a buck I shot on the private ground a number of years ago, right where the grey house is at now. It's just over 200" and my father-in-law shot a 169 the next week where the white house is now, about 50 yds apart. Lol

I got lucky about 25 years ago and bought 185 ac. of hardwood. We built a home here 20 years ago. This is the only place I have hunted since that time. Have hunted deer, turkey and squirrels but also have seen quail, rabbits and photos of bear. Unfortunately, I reaching a point that I will no longer be able to tend to the place so soon I'll be out of the hunting business. But wherever I go, I will have a place to shoot.

I have 110 acres of wooded land that I’ve owned for 25 years. I get to spend time there once a year, sometimes more.

I’ve never hunted on it, but I do shoot on it when I’m there.

I’m finally building a nice barn, so I can take my travel trailer there and spend more time.

It has deer, elk, bear, turkey etc. There are plenty of hunting opportunities and it is surrounded by mainly forest service property.

I have 10 acres of woods on the Oregon coast. Not enough to hunt on but I have harvested one deer on the property. Deer and an occasional Bear pass through.
