Just Moved to MA Looking for hunting Tips

I just moved to MA from WI. Currently live in Somerville. How is the public land hunting? Any areas good near where I live?
I am Active Duty Military from NY. Does MA charge Military instate license fees? Any advice would be appreciated. I like to hunt everything from squirrels rabbits to Deer.

Just Moved to MA Looking for hunting Tips

Where exactly is Somerville? I've lived in MA all my life, but never really knew where it was.
There is great deer hunting on public land in MA as well as bear. I hunt mainly public land and do fairly well.
I'd much rather be on private lands, but that doesn't come easy out here in Western MA.

It's just north of Cambridge.. right outside of Boston. Don't imagine many deer are taken there :smile:

Best treeing dog

I guess you will need a good treeing dog. I am hunting and breeding best treeing dogs ever. This is the West Siberian Laika. If you have one or a pair of them, they will tree for you the follwoing list of game:
squirrel, raccoon, groundhog, fisher, gray fox and black bear. My dogs are hunted almost every day here, in Virginia. I have a very good male puppy right now. He was supposed to be sent to a wild boar hunter in Hawaii, but this deal fell apart, because of their restrictive dog importation laws. Visit my web site or e-mail me any questions, if you are interested.
