We just saved you from being a Lonestar Law celebrity. Never go just by a county season.. each PHL has their own set rules.

With all the rain up north there's no end in sight. Might not even be worth getting a public land permit this coming season.

When are you guys going to start scouting Somerville and putting up cameras? I'm thinking about going next weekend if it doesn't rain too much.

I really feel like the area is totally different after the floods so we will have to scout for new trails no matter what area you decide to hunt. I never really got to hunt the area I scouted last summer. It was flooded the whole season. I had a camera stuck in there for three months before I could finally make my way back to it. Even in the floods deer were moving in my spot.

The GW we spoke with in January only knew of 3-4 deer taken in Somerville this past season. I met a guy that said he took a nice buck in October but other than that I didn't know anyone else that took a deer.

Can you hunt hogs from June - September? I was out there Saturday and I jumped about 15 pigs. Just curious if you can hunt them right now. I've heard two different stories.

I was looking forward too hunting sommerville some this year. But some of these people don't know public land rules or manners.
- be kind to other hunters, if there is someone in a spot, try if possible to walk around them. As a hunter, realize if your location is the only way through an area, people will probally disturb you.
- no land can be claimed. If I go up a tree, to realize someone put a stand in a tree not far from me...I don't have to move. The person who gets to the spot first had rights to that spot that day. You can't hang a stand and expect people to know if you. Even if you see the stand, that area is still fair game if the hunter is not present.

Lol I’m not gonna hunt out of anyone’s stand. Thats over the line. But if I set up in the dark not knowing there’s a stand nearby, then I’m not necessarily going to move when the sun comes up. That being said, I also probably won’t set up there again.

There was trial cam photos floating around of a thief out there last year stealing stands. He even made it on a episode of Lonestar Law out there.. they just didnt cover the stealing part. Only fraudulent hunting license claiming to be Active Duty but wasnt..

Rickybobby8, you sir need to take your own advice. You say, be kind. If you come upon a stand then you should move on and find another spot. There is plenty of land there to hunt. And I agree, if someon3 has taken the time to scout and place a stand,then, don’t be a jacka—s and sit in it. People like you is what gives hunters a bad name.

I take my own advice. I don't purposely ruin anyone's hunt. I will not happen my if someone else is already there. I also don't hunt out of others stands. Those that know me know 100% this is true. That I will even help others out if they shoot a deer.
But if you think hanging a stand means that area is yours...you are wrong. Too many times people leave their stands out there for who knows how long. Then you have people that think as long as they take it down and put it back up on a trip it doesn't violate the 72 hour rule. What they are essentially saying is this is my area, you can't hunt here all year. That is crap. You are not sharing the forest, you are trying to claim it. If I set up 50 yards away, not knowing there is a stand there...it is their responsibility to find a new spot for that day. Even if I know there is a stand there, seen it for a week straight...I am not assuming it's going to be hunted that day.
And as far as following me in and ruining my hunt....that is the attitude of people who ruin public land.
Also, I never leave a stand over night, and always bring it with me. Either a climber or a saddle, i do not leave them out. So each day I may be in a different spot

"I'll ruin your hunt"
"I will leave you up a tree"
"Who says person that gets their first"...that's common public land manners. Literally everyone who is decent knows this unwritten rule.

This person is the type of person who ruins public land hunting and gives others bad names.
