I have been doing a lot of squirrel hunting this year. I am going to try my luck with a bow soon too. My uncle has been mentoring me. My quesiton is this, do many folks deer hunt public lands or is it primarily private? I have been doing my squirrel hunting in public land, I don't really want to come across some dude in a tree stand out there, not do I want to ruin his deer hunt with my gun blasting. Comments?
