Planning to hunt a new to me piece of state land in bluff country on Saturday. About an hour south of me, which will hopefully eliminate some of that pressure. Plus, a first sit is always a good thing!I didn't compare public to private, I just used it as an example. I even said, this is private, but public is good too. I know public land bowhunters in western MN that routinely see 5+ deer per sit. That is not uncommon at all. I totally agree in eastern MN though with all the pressure. It was just a suggestion, sorry to ruffle your feathers.
