Default thought's on hunting land..

so i'm curious as to what some think about this land i just landed. it is public land but is land locked and hasn't been hunting(from i've been told by the person i got permission from) in about 10-12 years.

the arrow shows how i have to enter and is the west side of the land.
the red X's are where i have stands now, the blue X's are where i am looking to put some up if i can find away across the swamp.

oh and the white are the boarders.......

any more thoughts on this?

thanks

I dont know about in your state but in MO if it is public land it has to have an access road to it. So are you sure that it has not been hunted in 10 to 12 years. But from the picture it dosent look to bad.

yeah my buddies mom owns all the land around it and she has not left anyone pass through their land for about that long she said. the only other way to the land is about a mile(maybe two miles) away to the east and they would have to walk the entire way following the river. (which is not deep enough to boat down). i guess if some one wanted to they could go that way, lord knows i've waled further than that to a hunting area. but then again with all the properties they would have to cut through, there's bound to be one or two that won't let you cross..

** on another note, the land was not always land locked so it was accessable before all the houses and things went up. from there on out it's been locked ***

Default land

Is that cropland to the left? If the land on the other three sides is private land, I'd try to hunt the edges first. Trying not to moved deer onto other property. A stand between the water and crops( food) is where I would start. If you really want to get acrooss the swamp being public land, building a road is probably out of the puestion.

yeah thats crops...... problem is i can't go on there. i'm cutting it pretty close with the fartherst Blue "X". and being the first year i have gotten access to it..... i'd rather not tick anyone off. thats why i think if i get close enough i might be able to call them in.

thanks though.... i will be talkign to a few other owners around there and if goes well then i can get on in that crop area.

there's just under 300 acres... that is just the section with the white boarders. beyond that, the person also owns another 600.... and there's only 2 of us hunting it.

i can't get permission for any one else to come on right now. (even though it's public) because of having to go through their land. maybe next year...

i'm hunting Jefferson county

and yes i know i have to stager some more "inside", at this point i've only gotten out there twice because of how wet it's been there. i do have a few places marked out deeper in the woods but just haven't gotten the chance to get a better look yet.

i have found an old abandoned two track that is the dark area half way through the section by my arrows to go in at. if you look about half way it gets a darker green... thats a shelf and the last time i was in i watched 4 deer walk right down it. so thats another area i have in mind.
