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)
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
