    Welcome! And for state land on the west side I've always heard good things about Cadillac but I've never had the chance to make it out that way to hunt there. So I hope that helps you a little and gives you a little bit to start with.

    Michigan is really hard to gain access to private land unless you own it or know someone. All i cant say is put in your time knocking on doors and meeting new people. Another thing worth giving a try is looking on craigslist or putting a add on there, thats how i happened to come across my lease i have now.

    Hopefully you'll find someone who will let you hunt on their land. I hunt public land and it sucks big time. Nothing like hunting while 12 year olds tear up the place with 4 wheelers. :mad:
