Default How many acres do you hunt?

Couple questions here.

How many private land acres do you have permission / access to?

How many of those acres do you have exclusive permission on?

How would the acreage break down? Ex. How many acres of the properties are fields, woods etc etc.

Same here..... ZERO, ZERO, and ZERO [:-][&o]

However, I might be able to bowhunt on my oldest sister/bro-in-law's farm in upstate NY (south of Utica, near Hamilton). They have a 125 acre farm with a bunch of horses.

Default RE: How many acres do you hunt?

I am able to hunt on several pieces of private land.


My dad owns the following:

70 acres- This is pretty much cleared off. It is going to be developed.
150 acres- This is all pine forest.
265 acres- This has a few plots. It is used for a hunting camp. I do not hunt this, but I could if I wanted to.
150 acres- This is also a hunting camp. It has about 11 food plots. I do not hunt this either.
30 acres- This is in the middle of the city. I don't hunt here.

This is my dad's friends land:

200 acres- He gave me a key to the gate. I can hunt here whenever I want.
5 acres- This is his yard. He has some nice bucks there.

How many private land acres do you have permission / access to?
1800 - 2000 + depending on the year

How many of those acres do you have exclusive permission on?
500 or so

How would the acreage break down? Ex. How many acres of the properties are fields, woods etc etc.
If the total is 2000 then 500 are woods , 300 is CPR and the rest is farm feilds.

But I hunt funnels on 2 farms that are creek lines 10 acers or so each , that conect larger Nonpermission woods.
