Private Land

Pretty new to DHC. And just wanna say I enjoy reading and looking at the pics you fellas post.
I'd love to be on some of y'all's shoes. I'd give anything to have some private land to hunt some duck birds.
This is definitely my favorite site, Hands Down!
But once again, thanks for keeping me laughing when I'm at work.

You can find the same number of ducks on public land that you find on private land. I hunt both, and continue to kill the same species, and a limit is a limit.

All you have to do is go out & hunt em. Just find your own dang spots...mine are baited, and you could find yourself in a heap of trouble if I catch you hunting them! :-)

I do hunt public land. An limit out a lot. But just saying..
I'd be nice to own my own lil duck paradise.
I'm not into taking people's spots. I hunt where I find the birds.
Where ever they go. I follow!

I hunted public once in Tx with W.W. never again. I prefer to stick to my private areas!

Thats one of the misconceptions I think people that don't have private land( or access) have and that you well know Indian. You get out of bed knowing that there aren't a dozen people are there but there is a lot of responsibility and work inherent to having private dirt. I love to ramble and hunt different set ups/terrain and would not like to be obligated to be present at a specific place all the time but eventually I'll get another lease and or buy. There's tremendous satisfaction I'm sure from cultivating a space for wildlife.

Paying for a season lease not having to brush blinds, flood fields, or deal with idiots is a great deal. The only issue I have is that it's 3 hours away, and I can't hunt it every morning before work...that's where the public land pays off.

Personally I like it any way I can get it, and as long as I'm shootin I'm happy!

Oh I know most def Tako that private isn't the cake walk people think... Especially if you want to be successful. We put a lot of time, money, and hard work into our private areas. We Help landowners out whenever they need a hand as well. I don't like hunting the same areas all the time so we try to spread our access out around a wide area. When the conditions are right and the birds are thick I'll even hit public to make a good hunt and let the private places rest.

what determines how much yall give for a piece of private land? is it whatever will get you onto the property or is there a rule of thumb based on acreage of water?

I usually give a handshake and a few cases of beer to the owner every once in a while and always offer to help with any ranch or cattle work or anything they need.
