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.
