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.
