I’m looking at land to buy for deer hunting. Is 4 acres enough to hunt on?


The Weak Call It Obsession, The STONG Call it DEDICATION!!!

Thanks, FullDraw55

Assuming you do not think there is actually a right or wrong answer to your question, then I assume you are asking for opinions. If you are asking my opinion, then, personally it would be way too small for me to hunt on.

No it’s not enough to hunt on


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

You could put up some goat wire and have a challenging ram hunt.

You have to ask yourself. If I shoot a deer, is it going to be able to run off my property and onto someone else"s
before it dies. A lot of deer run 100 yards before dropping.

Im glad you draw the line somewhere. smile
Im trying to be funny on that, but seriously, I commend txtrophy85 for his post. He sells land for a living and I assume all size properties and some may be considered small to some. Evidently a 4 acre "ranchette" is pushing it(for hunting).
Fulldraw if you up your land size he may be a good realtor to consider.

In many counties, you must have at least 10 acres in order to be able to legally discharge a firearm. The smallest place that I have ever hunted on was 18 acres...and that was small. IMO, even if you are legally allowed to discharge a firearm on the property, 4 acres is too small.

This. I was going to say that - my county is one of them.

Given the deer per square mile of land ratio in a particular area, how many deer does 4 acres support?

Lets be generous and call it 60 deer per 1000 acres.

That puts you able to kill 0.06 deer.

One deer shoulder. Maybe. bolt

You could probably lease out half of it on craiglist and help pay for it.

I have killed deer on 2.5 acres, 5 acres, and on 11 acres, but did so VERY carefully. CNS shots only, no running. Not something I recommend unless you’re good with your neighbors.
