what is the deal in your area? can you just pull over beside the road when you find a nice looking spot or is everything private land? are landowners receptive to requests to hunt on there property? here in the northeast it is getting more difficult to find open hunting land. no tresspassing / posted. everywhere. sad situation :sad:

All privately owned in my area, except for Wayne National Forest.  20 years ago, deer hunters from all over came to my area, and did just what you said, "just pulled over along side the road wherever they felt like", even parked in people yards and driveways, total disregard for posted, "no hunting areas". So everyone can thank these types of people for the attitude that most around me have towards hunters nowadays.  It's always "no hunting",  unless your their neighbor.

That's one of the great things about living here.
The Govt. has a rule making it illegal to "discharge a firearm or cause a projectile from a firearm to pass along or across;
a) a provincial highway,
b)a road that is paved, oiled, or regularly maintained, UNLESS
* the road is held under any active disposition under the Public Lands Act or under an order under the Surface Rights Act, OR
*the person is hunting game birds with a shotgun under the authority of a licence"

That means that I can be driving ANYWHERE in the Province, that is not designated a preserve, and if I see a Pheasant or any other game bird in the ditch, I can screech from my usual 60mph. jump out and start shooting. Gives that warm safe feeling, don't it?  j44

That's one of the things I liked about B.C. Most of the hunting was done on logging roads. Hop out, shoot the Grouse......drive farther up the road, hop out and shoot the Deer !

reeves and labmancan that sounds pretty much like the deal here in Maine. ( heater hunting )  s020 as for the disrespectfull behavior  its too bad a few bad apples have to ruin everything  for the rest of us.. the 4 wheeler guys and speed boaters did the same thing. their  areas are dwindling. the real surprise lately is no snowmobiling signs. I  never thought I would see that.

Most of the land in TX. is private and must be leased annually. Some large tracts available to public for hunting. www.texasparks and wildlife.com

AB is a a lot tougher finding roads you can do that on. Look at a map of BC and AB.....big difference. However, BC is covered in logging roads, not on maps.
I forget which Province has the rule, but I think it's AB that you have to be a certain distance from your vehicle before you can shoot.
Regs for both Provinces are about a 30lb book, that you need a team of lawyers to read and advise you.
AB also has some goofy rules for fishing: no barbed hooks.

The real crazy thing about Ab., is you can do it on ANY road, as long as it is for Bird Game, and you are using a Shotgun. Rifle, Bow and Slug for Big Game are entirely different rules, which requires a lawyer to interpret.  s176

no barbed hooks.. I think their trying to at least recommend that here in the states to. as for the rules up there. a few years ago we went to northern Quebec on vacation. I was reading over some of the fishing rules. and found a lot of weird  sounding stuff. I saw some places a little further north where you can not fish without a local Indian guide.

It's locked up around my area as well Just like CharlieHorse has stated. If you are not family or a neighbor in good standing, don't ask.

We even have road signs down my road that have been  c110 up. The last time I had seen something like this was in the 1960's on L.I. NY.

So hard to find hunting land in Ohio, I lease 760 acres in southern Ohio from paper company.  There has been just to much abuse from ( hunters?) in the past.

I have been quite fortunate, I being an outsider, and from Nu Yak, no less,  s020 have been accepted in my community. I have access to well over 625 acres with out getting into my truck.

I have great respect for the people in my community. I also enjoy having a cup or two or three, of coffee and talking and listening about old times and their old times. Two different worlds, WV and NY.

thats right a lot of local business here in rural Maine is done at the local country store around the wood stove over a cup of coffee. one has to work themselves into this group but once in your all set. hopefully if we do end up moving south  I can find a similar deal.
