    Wayne county. I only hunt in lake county. I would like to find somewhere closer to hunt though, due to the fact that I am working 6 days a week as of right now. Seems like a lot of people hunt Jackson. so it doesn't seem so favorable to me.

    I live in Macomb County, but I have hunted here, Oakland County, and St. Claire County (my main land). And this year I am trying out the huge plot of public land on Harsens Island. Went and checked it out a couple weeks ago and saw about 8 deer. Should be a pretty good season!

    Yeah, we were very skeptical at first but it is really a last resort kind of deal. Hopefully next year we can get permission from a few properties or look into a lease.

    For you guys hunting state land I give you credit. Key thing is to find those state land areas off the beaten path but i dont know of any around me. I know there is some good looking state land out by leslie and there has been a few good bucks taken out of there every year. By me finding land or a lease was next to impossable unless you know someone. I resorted to putting a add on craigslist after knocking on hundreds of doors. I got very lucky and had a guy contact me that has great land and a steal of a price to lease it.

    I have done this a lot, not too many friendly farmers on craigslist lol. I agree Leslie (waterloo) is a great area
