MIKE J. wrote:Moe,
Your public area is sweet, I think most folks are familiar with it and respect the fact that you and Baymen Dave hunt it on a regular basis and stay clear. I have seen an increase in the numbers of new hunters and that is great for the most part. The only issue I have is watching them shoot at birds that are well out range and no concept of species ID. One local public spot this weekend really pounded the cormorants.

I know of some decent spots out near concord or closer to the central part of the state,
If you want some pointers, I would check out the DCR land and WMAs close to you... I would also look at google earth and use that to your advantage. There are limited spots out near concord area but within a 30 min drive you can be near decent places in central ma. If you are looking for ideas, I can prolly help you out with some spots over near that area, I dont hunt there yet because of the drive from North Central Ma and some productive holes up where I am.
If you are looking I can point you in the right direction... You can PM me and prolly give you some Ideas....
I would expect in that area you Should make sure you have everything to make yourself legal LOL... If the town bans water bottles i cant imagine what they would do to a guy in full camo with a shotgun...

only ever once had the police called on me...and they could not have been more friendly. no questions asked just a handshake and 5 minutes of chootin the chit.
so far in only two hunts this season, i have not seen any more or fewer hunters than in seasons past. although i did find a few spent shells in the blind that i thought i had to myself. i shouldnt say my blind, it is public land and belongs to whoever gets up the earliest

I live in Concord and thought I'd add to the conversation re: McManus
Would enjoy talking with you about the places I hunt (mostly with my father-in-law). We may have met at pantry brook sometime - one of our go-to places.
re: Concord, I live on the Assabet and my neighbor has about 10 acres and his land is "legal". However, when I hunt there, I am always met by the Concord police - who are super nice - but it takes away from the enjoyment. FYI - the neighbors (and their kids) don't seem to mind when I come out with some geese/ducks from the hunt - makes for some good conversation at the bus stop.
