Its just not the same as sitting there listening to the sounds of nature, enjoying the quite and observing deer that are not pressured.
I haven't been firearm deer hunting for about seven years.
Besides the amateur orange army privates blasting away at shadows and movement, I was spoiled by a week on private land on NE that had lots of big deer and no public land "yahoo factor". Managed private land > 1000* best public land.
