Public Land

8 posts in this topic

I hunted on uncle's land in Rusk Co for 15 years. Last week, I got a phone call from my uncle, He just sold the land so I am forced myself to hunt on public land. Right now I am looking for land to hunt, I am looking at Rusk Co. forest land or Sawyer Co. forest land I am wonder do any of you guys hunt there? is too many hunters? a lot of atv riders? I want to hear some of you guys that have some exprienced on these land. I plans to go there for gun deer season. Thanks

There is a lot of land if you want to hunt the chequamegon national forest. i dont hunt deer in that area, but im sure it is like any other public land up north during opening weekend--you need to get out early or you will struggle to find a spot without many people around. maybe somebody can give you more specifics, but check out a chequamegon forest map for starters.

Call the county, get a plot map. There are always little 50-100 acre spots here and there that are public. Don't just look to the big woods.

But it does seem to get busier ever year. Good luck.

In any case be careful on hunting public lands. My sons and I were hunting county forest in Barron county for the T-Zone and had our deer cart stolen out of the back of our truck. Make sure you lock ,secure everything.I have a good idea who did it and I hope he has four spares next time we meet he'll need them.

Sorry to hear that Vman. It's a real shame that we have to lock up everything. How did you do hunting? I got a chance to go out yesterday morning and filled one tag.

I have hunted the forest before.

It seems the deer numbers are lower compared to other parts of Wisconsin.

May be due to the Timberwolves.

I have heard their howls.

Chequamagon National Forest has been waaay down in the past couple of years. That being said, the deer are there if you know how to hunt big woods and avoid the big hunting parties.
