LOAD YOUR DAYPACK AND LACE UP YOUR BOOTS, BECAUSE OUR PUBLIC LANDS OFFER ENDLESS HUNTING OPPORTUNITIES. HERE’S HOW TO UNLOCK THEM
Our public lands offer incredible opportunities to hunt deer, elk, antelope, and birds—but only if you have the know-how and desire to get in on the action. This is your guide to success this fall.
Knowledge and effort. That’s what it takes to successfully hunt public land. You need skills and a good game plan to outwit critters that have adapted specifically to avoid hunting pressure. But know-how gets you only so far. On the level playing field of America’s public lands, a little extra sweat often makes the difference between punched tags and empty game bags. So we’ve put together a mountain of tactics from expert public-land hunters, plus a collection of stories that capture the essence of hunting public ground. We hope the tactics give you an edge this fall and the stories keep the fire burning hot all season long.
