Default How Much Land ?

How many acres do you hunt on, and do you feel like it is enough, if not, less or more. I personally hunt on around 1400 acres here in Illinois, and I feel like I have plenty of land. I have land to hunt in both Pike and Brown county. Both places have been great producers of many very nice deer. I feel privileged,as I know many people struggle to find a place. I just pray that no outfitter comes and ruins it for me and my friends and family.

i hunt on 400 acres of state land. it is all surrounded by private property and the only way to it is privated property and my land is one of those properties. everyone else that lives around it are old and retired. they don't hunt or don't hunt anymore.

I hunt 135 acres, with another 85 acres to spare (opposit side of the road). More than enough for the 4 of us that hunt together!!

Oh, i didn't mention the other surounding acreage is owned by city folk - who are tree huggers!! So we have no problems!!

They feed them - we bag em!! lol All kidding aside, we know these people and althought they do not agree with hunting, they do not try to interfere in any way with our hunting!!!

I have several places. They range from a few acres behind the house to 200-300 for my biggest area. Most are around a 100.

I own 10.5 acres with a cabin on it and have access to the 80 acres that borders me though I usually stay on my property.I've taken some pretty nice deer off it and had the opportunity to tag deer every year.It' suits me fine.

400 personally owned acres surrounded by another 6-800 that I can hunt.

Pretty lucky for this day and age.
