Hunting on your land

Living the Country Life Radio Program

Although your property may be crawling with deer, elk, or pheasant, wild animals are considered to be a public resource. This means that you do not have automatic hunting rights on your land. You might be granted a reduced-fee license to go hunt on your own property, but you are still expected to obey all other applicable hunting regulations. This includes not shooting animals out of season and taking all appropriate non-lethal steps to control property damage caused wild animals. If you decide to allow others to hunt on your property, remember that planning and communication are the keys to a safe hunting experience.
