    I'm not saying it's public, but it is good bird country.

    I agree. It's excellent bird country but excellent bird country you can't hunt is, well, just a zoo you drive through.

    I hunt alone, drive an old beater truck, I don't dress like a hunter, I get on some really good places sometimes.It works.

    Goosemaster, I hunt alone too, drive a truck with 400,000 miles on the odometer with just a camper shell that I sleep in the back of and hunted with one dog. I take my hat off when I introduce myself and use the manners my mother taught me. I slow down on those gravel roads when I meet another vehicle so I don't break windshields or get mine broken. I shot no more than two birds in any spot and moved on leaving just bent grass. Like you, I found that made a difference. Those are good, generous, tough people back there and they understand and respect someone who understands that they are visitors in somebody else's house. Guys who hunt in groups with a bunch of dogs will never see the hunting you and I have experienced. I can't recall walking more than a mile to shoot the birds I wanted and only walked a longer distance to get back to the truck over a different route and avoid trespassing on land I had no permission to be on.

    Well all, time for closing thoughts. As calamari said, it was a learning experience. Next time I’ll push for more road time and less sleep to get where we should be. Our final stop allowed us the greatest opportunity. The problem was the fields were full of hunters as suggested. We saw some birds next to private land, but there was no way they they would have let all of us on it. I agree with you two, there’s something about traveling light and without a bunch of people that opens things up. As I said before, I have no regrets. The land is beautiful, people are nice and it’s better than sitting at home!! Thank you all for the encouragement and support.

    It all comes down to scouting, never hunting with more than one other guy, or hunting alone, looking pathetically poor, but not looking shabby, driving a farm truck, sometimes acting retarted,talking to farmers, not looking like a hunter.Sometimes I wear a old golf shirt, and I look kind of like Nick faldo, and that works for getting permissions. If they think you are pathetic, and no threat to their bird population, they might let you hunt.

    Goosemaster, I can't let this slide. If you have to put forward a false persona to get permission to hunt, personally, I think you are exhibiting terrible behavior. In effect you're lying to hunt and treating someone who is being generous with their land like a chump. Those ranchers back there name the big game on their property and value them for their own use. The birds, not so much. They are more concerned about hunters bringing in noxious weeds, leaving trash, tearing up their roads and getting stuck and setting it all on fire out of stupidity. Play acting to get permission isn't being clever, it's being an as......
