Did you ask any farmers in your area about hunting on their land? There are also local sportsmans' clubs, and don't forget Horicon Marsh, Collins Marsh, and Peninsula State Park.

I don't know about your area but arround here hunting public land is like playing on the freeway.

same with public land here, mostly dangerous or has had every living thing shot off of it. farmers here are bombarded with requests by unethical morons that they won't even take the time to listen to a responsible hunter unless they are refered to them from a friend/family member. things have definately been ruined here for us.

I really was expecting that answer, but it was all I could offer for advice.

You might search online or talk to a realestate agent about finding a hunting lease. It can get pricy but if you have some friends to go in on it with you it can be reasonable.

My recomendation is to find a hunting preserve near your home. That way you know you'll find game and won't have to worry about other hunters. You can take your time, do some teaching on safety and have a generally good time.

Join a hunting club, if any there be in your area. I have 8200 acres of paradise that my club pays the real estate taxes on. I'm sure some farmer will give you and your friends exclusive hunting rights for just paying his property taxes. We pay $750 per year each for some of the finest hunting lands in the state. We go anytime we want to year around and the lands are restricted to members only. To me that is economy hunting.

I live in Newfoundland Canada. I can't imagine having to look for a place to hunt. This thread has really opened my eyes. Can you imagine anywhere you park your car you can hunt save for private property? That's Newfoundland. The population is 500,000 for an area about the size of California.

I agree with others that a hunt club would be a good start for a child. They will at least see birds and have shooting opportunities without wearing them out. The above is a really nice and friendly place not too far from you. Stop and shoot some sporting clays and talk about the bird hunts. The owner always has a deal going, so ask him.

When I was getting my boys started hunting...the first few times we went hunting I splurged for a game preserve (hunt club). I wanted to make sure there was some success with the hunt (akin to taking kids fishing a a bluegill pond in order to get them into fishing).

If that is not an option, you might want to look into a guide/outfitter. Best of luck and I hope you and your son/kids develop a great hunting/outdoor partnership that lasts for years to come.

When I lived out West in northern NV, I had ~80,000 square miles of open public land to hunt on. That is economy hunting.

If you don't know property owners who will let you hunt, check out the public hunting areas at state parks and wildlife areas. For introducing a 10 yr old to hunting, I recommend squirrel hunting. It is low key, enjoyable, and provides lots of opportunity to sit on a log and teach.
