I witness the easy, open access areas while hunting wma's. It's true people flock to them. I usually bury my self where nobody else wants to go or its to far of a walk, thick' or wet for most and have success.

How do you find primary scrape areas and fruit trees on public land? I he been very unsuccessful at locating either of those especially here in Michigan. Ohio there was more scrape activity. I don't think I've ever fond a Rouge fruit tree on public land either. I've always kept my eyes peeled for persimmon and apples but never found any other than a few really unhealthy crab apple trees which I think we're native . But any tips on those 2 things would be appreciated.

I go where it’s too far for lazy hunters. Most hunters I’ve seen do not like to put actual work into hunting. If you can drive into the hunting area, you’re in the wrong area.

You're flat out wrong about mature bucks never being out in open fields and open hardwoods. True they don't walk out in open areas as much as the thick hardwoods. But never will they ever walk out to open areas during legal light. Not always. Even on public ground I see bucks from yearling to mature age bucks out to open fields to feed during legal light. If the does are out in the open areas, So will the big bucks. Success is all about patience.

Public ground is very tough to hunt. I hunt exclusively public ground in PA which makes it very difficult to kill a buck on camera but when you do it is very rewarding.

I have hunted more than one public place where there were big bucks near the road. One in Maryland I never could sneak in. It was right behind a DNR building in a small patch of brush with a couple fence rows leading into it. Others were where houses backed up to the public land. There was a swamp on an old farm with open fields that went for hundreds of yards in either direction. I have often seen deer in very open woods bedded on a slightly higher spot, especially on windy days.

If you just want to kill a doe/fawn/just a deer for the freezer, what's the best type of place to be? Would a large opening in the woods be good? And also…..can't scout can only blind hunt….

I would think correct me if i am wrong….. doing a stand cant be all that bad as if your standing and all these others are trying to stealth still hunt to me would seem a good chance they can jump and drive a deer in your direction

On public you better get close to bedding area and wind right direction for the big bucks
