Season opens 1 Nov. It's my first year here, so I'm still scouting but things are looking good. 64B where I live especially, its shot-gun/muzzleloader only. 63B is rifle and I'm still working on getting access there.
yea just find some crown land too hunt on so you dont need to ask for access we have pretty much all the animals we need here except deer i go to the belleville, cooper, stirling area for my deer hunting trip.
There's not a lot of Crown land around down here. It's pretty much all farm land. The farmers are generally hunter friendly, but are understandably nervous about letting some unknown city-boy loose with a loaded gun on their property. I've got an in with someone though, I'll know for sure in a week or so.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
