Mostly on our private lease, but it attaches to a large piece of State land that is not easily accessed by other hunters. 10 years ago I was strictly hunting state land. It proved very difficult to find land that wasn't hunted out, this eventually forced my brother and I to lease 350 acres.
Only hunting I do on private is whitetail and its only for 2 weeks the other hunting I do is all on crown land (public) Ontario has so much crown land its not funny there is literally tonnes of area to hunt and there will never be too many hunters if you go far enough.(Well sorry I wont say never It does look like it seems to booming here in ontario)
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
