I was a little disappointed in drawing the 2nd season, as the state land that we hunt gets a lot of early season pressure. This prompted me to look for private land when my original plans were to hunt public land.

I managed to secure access to 550 acres of prime wooded land in Iosco County. My partner and I will be the only ones hunting. Hunted it one day last year and got my bird. Looking forward to getting out there again. I am working on securing the adjcent 250 acre parcel as well...


Where will you be hunting when your season opens? Public or Private?

Public.

Got the first hunt this year. In the past, I've hunted the last season but last year we never even heard a bird. We used to have decent luck during the last season but I think there are less birds around. Too many coyotes.

Private land around the house, during the first hunt. Hopefully the weather straightens out, and dries up before then. Riding the bike back in where I hunt might be more exciting than the hunt with the slippery clay two track trail. ;) BAYDOG

I have the late guarenteed zone zz hunt period (may 3rd). I chose it because it was gaurenteed and it's almost a month long.
Also there are a good number of birds on the private land i hunt and not too much presure.
I will be hunting Allegan County.
Good luck this year.
