I have a question about hunting on fema owned land the public hunting around me is crowded and pressured but there is alot of fema buyouts when i search on xonhunts map it labels them as public lands but i can find no information on bow hunting them

From: Rookie
Can you trim a shooting lane on public land?

From: LBshooter
Public land can be good but the last couple,of,seasons they have been culling to get the herd numbers down. Hunted the chain Oakes last year for shotgun and not one deer was taken in the three day season, I saw zip. Yes people cut lanes, just stay away from cutting big branches , people do it but they shouldn't.

Are there any public/state lands that are not state parks that people can just pull up and hunt deer, squirrel, rabbit?(in Illinois)

From: Highlife
Short answer yes. One needs to get on the DNR site and check out public hunting sites. CYA and check the site regulations out sites have different regs and permit requirements

The list of public hunting areas begins on page 50. Site fact sheets can be found here, once you identify a possible site from the Digest:
