Would you choose to hunt State Land in NJ, or a 10 acre private piece of property in Colts Neck,NJ.

The state land could be anywhere in NJ......but the private piece is pretty much hunting in a ravine with a stream and thickets..

Which would you choose?[]

nobody can really answer that......you have to scout and make the desision yourself based on what you see and how you feel about each....there might not be a single deer in this ravine....go check it out and look on state land and compare what you think will be best.....good luck

I guess I don' t really understand what the dilemma is, hunt both. 10 acres isn' t enought to hunt unpressured the whole season, you' ll burn it our very quickly, so you' re going to need more spots anyway. That' s assuming you hunt regularly.
If the property is good, and it sounds like it, river bottom with thickets is hard to beat, especially if there' s some crop fields nearby, you' ll have a nice spot, but I' d want to have a bunch of other places to hunt during the course of the year as well. What if there' s a poaching problem, or tresspassing, or dogs, etc, you' re going to need a backup. I have 4 state properties I hunt, as well as a half a dozen farms, and I hunt them all during the course of the season. Hunting ground is like money, you can never have too much. Good luck

I HAVE TO AGREE HUNT THEM BOTH AND LAND IS LIKE THE MIGHTY " $$$$" NO MATTER WHAT YOU NEVER HAVE ENOUGH. I HUNT WITH BOW, SHOTGUN, MUZZLELOADER ON STATE LAND AND I SEE SOME GREAT BUCKS.

Since I only hunt state land you should stick to the 10 acres, then there' ll be one less hunter on the WMA' s Only kidding, I agree with the rest, hunt them all. Then you' ll always have a couple of days to let things calm down. You never know when you may really need that private ground.
