Coastal Beach Deer Hunting
« on: July 12, 2019, 04:23:57 PM »
Question, who owns the land between ocean and where private properties begin? Over the years, I've spent a fair amount of time at various ocean beaches up and down the state and have noticed a fair number of deer inbetween ocean and private property. Is this land huntable? (archery equipment) Thanks

Pop the location into OnX maps. It will tell you who the owner is. Most likely it's either that county easement or state land. Hope that helps.

If you dont have OnX feel free to PM me and I'll look it up for ya.

I believe its state land (DNR?) from the westerly property line out.  There are a lot of areas that can't be hunted due to county ordinances in my area.  Never the less, it seems like a bad idea to hunt along the beach due to proximity of residences and people, especially if you're tracking an animal.  :bdid:

Every county and certain areas with in a county are different.  In some areas the ocean side of the property line changes with the hide tide mark.  In some areas State parks own so no hunting.  It gets really confusing.  Do your research at the county level.

Probably better off getting Onx and permission from landowner.
You might have a small section where it is legal to hunt, but recovery could depend on access.
.
I ran into a similar problem once on an island.
I had permission to hunt one property, but the animal ran to "safety" when hit.
Small plots cause property lines to be pretty close.

I agree with what Stiknstring replied.

It's an interesting question to me that I had never previously pursued. From what I could find quickly, it looks like the seashore conservation area (state managed part) ends at the high tide mark. Landward of that, ownership varies same as anywhere.

Have OnX, doesn't show property owner info on the coast. Small areas? Lots of them... but... some spots are a good 2or300 yards from private. Tight, yes, but plenty of room for a kill. Have never had a deer run more than 100yds after sticking it.

Ocean shores is where I was thinking. That place is thick with deer.

Awesome animals, I’m going to assume the sheep is still at the taxi?

.....and no hunting in state parks.    >:(    With a little ingenuity, you might be able to find some huntable land just off the beach that the deer are using.  Those deer don't sleep on the beach.

Ocean Shores is definitely off limits but man are there some toads in their. Grayland, Ocean Shores, Moclips, Long Beach... they all seem to have big bucks just off the coast.
