From Public Land Hunter editors David Draper and Adam Heggenstaller (excerpt from “Letter from the Editors”):


"Public Land Hunter is dedicated to those hunters who want to step out their back door (or maybe take a short drive) and go hunting for whitetails, turkeys, squirrels, rabbits and other game close to home. Or take a weekend adventure to a nearby state. Or plan a weeklong hunting camp that is such an iconic part of the hunting tradition.

"We’ve filled these pages with the perfect mix of how-to tips for punching your tag and where-to information on the best public hunting spots the eastern U.S. has to offer. We’ve also got a comprehensive guide to great gear built for public land hunters who are looking for value but don’t want to sacrifice performance. Public land is to be celebrated, respected and hunted well. We hope Public Land Hunter helps you in those pursuits."
