Hunter numbers did seem to be up on public land in 272 and 136 this year.  Maybe because of the fires?

There is a 240 acre parcel of blm land across from my driveway that hasn't had a lot of pressure in the past due to no parking and very little shoulder on the road.  This year it was like people were hunting in shifts.  One truck would leave and another would pull up and so on all day everyday.  Never seen anything like it.  I think technology has a little to do with it.  No local spots anymore with ONX and other apps.

My mom lives there. Last week I saw a ton of doe and a nice 4 point. He didnt care and watched me drive by at about 30 yards. Not near as many bucks as there was in the late 90's but still worth going if you know some land owners. Public land isnt one I'd take as my first choice.

OnX has killed alot of my old “secret “ public land spots. But I do use it occasionally. It’s a great thing but it also sucks  :chuckle:
