New to the forum, gotta question. Hunting on public land (archery only). Got set up in my tree and noticed about 100yrds behind me another hunter was setting up. We are on a fence row, thin bottle neck of timber. I shine my light so they know I'm here. He sets up anyway. How close is too close?
That is one of the real disvantages to Hunting public land. Itís not so much about finding animals as it is about avoiding other hunters. Give it a couple of weeks and the other hunters will all but disappear.
