Getting land around Holland is hard. There are some open land that you can go to as well as a huge state land area not to far away in Allegan. I live in Holland. You can pm if you want to know more.

Check out campus clubs, see if they have an outdoors club that has hunting/fishing, or if there is a campus club that involves hunting. One of the students at the university I work for started a hunting club and created a facebook site for the club. You can probably find faculty and staff that hunt as well. Take time to develop relationships with people in the university, you might be suprised at what that tough as nails math or english prof that you think you can't stand does in his or her spare time....

Chris,

Welcome to the Forum. Just to the south of Holland is the Allegan State Game Area. There are really good areas to hunt there. Some areas get hunted hard while others do not. The key is plenty of scouting or contacts that know the area and can set you up. I'd recommend asking your teammates about private property and see what developes. Good luck.

start talking to anyone and everyone. It is amazing how much you can get out of talking and sharing. Maybe someone know's a farmer who need some help around the far or so on

Jut talk to anyone that you come in contact with

Good luck and stay positive

Not trying to be a jerk but your posts are very difficult to read with your alternative spellings like (ur = your), (ppl=people), (o ya = oh yeah). Also you would do yourself some good to use a spell check. I'm not trying to be the spelling nazi or suggest we don't all misspell words but your posts are laden with spelling errors making them difficult to read.
Presentation, and how you present yourself, is important whether in person or in writing. I'd imagine you'd get much better responses to your posts if written better. Just my opinion.

Yeah, it is internet talk. It is alot faster to typer rather then doing it the right way. I think i could find time to go hunting if i find a spot. Well i know i can because i love hunting also is there any good ice fishing in the Holland area?
