Q:
I'm doing a little research. How many of you folks depend on public land or private land in public access programs for your small and upland game hunting activities?

I hunt public and private land both for pheasants and do all my turkey and waterfowl hunting on public land. Unfortunately my home state of Iowa does not have a walk-in access program like the ones in South Dakota and Kansas.

For pheasants i depend entirely on public land. For turkeys and deer i use the private land that we own.

I primarily hunt grouse and ptarmigan on state forest land...occasionally will hunt a private farm if able to, depending on time, etc...

Primarily all I hunt, so depend upon it greatly. Getting harder and harder to get access to quality private ground due to owners leasing or charging tresspass fees that the average guy cannot afford.

Public land is the only option I have for every game animal I hunt. Colorado's walk-in access program made it possible for me to discover and enjoy the heck out of pheasant hunting.

I agree with idahooutdoors, the rich outfitters and landowners are shutting down access and outbidding or flat-out buying out the average joe hunter, not just here in Montana, but it sounds like the trend through out the West. I hope legislation looks out for the resident, average hunters in their state and holds their interest at heart.

I'm fortunate enough to hunt mostly private land this year. In past years I've hunted alot of public land, and next year I could be back at public land again.

Deer and turkey hunt all private. Waterfowl nearly all public and upland birds both.

Beekeeper, BTW we are having what is shaping up to look like one of the best Spring Turkey seasons ever in Kansas. Billy and I figure we saw at least 15 Male birds today alone.
