Permission poll

One of the ongoing debates on the forum is access to hunting land. Some argue that with SH for example, much land will be posted. Having hunted in PA for about 60 years, I wonder how many guys actually have permission to hunt the woods they are in??

Best regards, Glenn

Re: Permission poll

The woman who owns the land where I hunt, lets myself and my friend hunt there because we work for her around the farm in the summer spraying the trees. I think its a fair deal.

Re: Permission poll

Glenn,

The one thing about the poll is it doesn't take into account public land. You don't need permission to hunt there. Just a thought but it is probably skewing your results because people who hunt public land have to vote none of the above. You won't find out how many people are hunting private land without permission.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Permission poll

i have verbal permission to hunt a lot of farms. just about any person we do custom work for allows me to hunt. its a shame i dont hunt PA anymore, i would have it made. i was givin permission, well actually i was told to shoot yotes yesterday at the property i was tedding hay at. i'll stick to the 50 acres in MD though, the 1000's in PA just dont seem inviting anymore.

Re: Permission poll

This poll only takes about half of the general hunting population into consideration. I'm a land owner, do I get a say. Same with public land hunters and people that may hunt friends/family lands.....add some more options and you'll get a better idea of how people feel..... Good idea for the poll though!

Re: Permission poll

The comments are right, it does not take into consideration public land and that was not the intended target of the poll. Nor does it consider land that you own.

I am curious about the status of folk who know they are hunting private land and what kind of permission for access is common.

Best regards, Glenn

Re: Permission poll

most private lands i hunt we need written permission.

the townships and boro's passed laws that while using land for recreation you must have written permission slips on you at all times. and when the police come they do ask for it, and sometimes take you to the land owner to check.

Re: Permission poll

I DON'T OWN IT! Some of us hunt state land and earn everything we get.
