    If I owned land, I would let you hunt on it! Good luck!

    I haven't had much luck in my area either.Mainly 3 reasons.
    1)owners hunt themselves
    2)too many bad experiences with people they don't know
    3)lease money is hard for farmers to turn down

    I've knocked on many a door.Make sure you dress nice,wash your car,and introduce yourself.Offer to help do some "grunt" work in the off season.Offer to share your harvest,thin out the doe herd,see if they have a coyote problem.Take your time and earn their trust.

    I was able to get permission on 3 properties-one is for goose hunting-I help them pick pumpkins for halloween.The other 2 are for deer-but only after the hunt for themselves.

    Put some effort into it,and don't give up.It may take years.

    Mr. Channel its getting like that all over. If your not a land owner & your looking for prime hunting you better get your wallet out. Atleast thats how it is up north here. They pay big buck for the "Big Bucks" lol Another opition is run an ad in the free ads paper. I have seen people do that before also. Good luck with it.

    I live on Brookville Lake and there is a lot of good hunting on Government land, although if you hunt close to parking it tends to get really cluttered. They best way is to not be afraid to walk a ways or to USE A BOAT TO get away from all of the other YAAHOOS!! If you have a boat there is a ton of good hunting on brookville lake with little hunting pressure. There are "check in stations" all over. U sighn in then can go where ever u want on the GOV. land.
