Do what 25up said and knock knock knock. Attitudes have changed in chester county towards deer. Most people want them gone after spending money to replace landscaping.

Re: Land to lease in Chester County

godscountry hit it, you just need to find the right people. The property I hunt was that way, they loved the deer when they moved in. 10 years later.....3 cars damaged, 2 family members with lyme, dogs barking constantly, and of course the landscaping costs....all the sudden they want them all dead. The properties are out there, but they are tiny patches, mine is just 12 acres, but if I really want, I don't have to leave the back porch most of the time.

Re: Land to lease in Chester County

I understand Dave, I moved out here about three years ago and got into archery last year and spent all last summer introducing myself to landowners for permission to hunt their property. I am a pretty nice guy, clean cut and all but i still went 0 for 28 on properties. I recommend contacting large farms in the more rural part of the county. Wont have it to your self but some may let you on. Thats what I am trying, but no luck yet.

Re: Land to lease in Chester County

Just takes some time, you will bump into the right person at some point. I never hunted the area I deer hunt now ever, or knew there was that many deer there, as I live in the Western part of the county. Just one day I got to know a lady who worked in a store I delivered to in King of prussia(I was a UPS driver) One day she said, "hey your an outdoors guy, how do I get rid of deer?" I of course said easy, tell me where your house is, and i'll come shoot them. Without hesitation she gave me her address, and told me she had at least 30 in her yard every day. I told her I would come check it out for safety, etc., think it was just some woman who didn't know about deer. Well, driving down here driveway, I saw 15 deer before I even got to the house, then another 20 were bedded under some pines at the edge of her woods. Luckily she had 12 acres, with plenty of room around to hunt, even with a gun. I been there ever since, now really good friends with her husband. It can happen at anytime, you just never know. Plenty of people ask to hunt this guys property, and if you don't know him personally, it's a no. Just have to get the right relationship at the right time. Good luck

Re: Land to lease in Chester County

My buddy got me 1 property in Chester county cause he works as a pharmacist. Guy came in with Lyme cursing the deer and the rest is history. He liked how we were very low key, and bow only and hooked us up also with his neighbors.
