I'm so sick of public hunting land. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad there there is some around here and that is my only opportunity to hunt. The deer were already nocturnal but since the opening of pheasant season they are especially nocturnal. I've had several guys that I've had to holler at and let them know I'm hunting in there (so they don't spook the deer out of the county much less shoot me), its just getting frustrating. I would love to buy land someday, and actually it is a dream of mine but probably won't even be able to think about it for 10 years at least. It almost seems like the lease thing is the only way to go, but I just don't see how I could justify spending thousands of dollars for a couple months. I'm just frustrated and I had to vent. I wouldn't even care as much if there were a bunch of other bowhunters, but the pheasant hunters don't care about scent or the noise they make. I know they have as much right to be there as I do, and I'm not mad at them or anything at all. I'm glad they get to get out and have fun too. I'm just frustrated with the situation. I'd be interested to hear some of your stories.
