Anyone have info for public land owners for area 17. the SO and I are thinking we may take on the task of wacking a few white rumped praire rockets this Oct.

I have never done an open country type hunts but am confident in my rifle skills and heck it sounds like a ton of fun. I have been hunting whitetail for 2 decades now and over the last 5 years mostly archery for whitetail and black bear. I have a Savage 110 in 270 win and my SO has a rem 798 in 270 win as well. I know I can hit easy at over 300. She has some pretty good skill as well.

What are the tactics most use? I think most do spot and stalk from what I have read. Does anyone use a ground blind and wait it out?

I am doing my homework and have WIA maps for the area and BLM maps on the way. A BLM corrospdent had informed me that the public land in the area is usually land locked thus the reason I am asking for the land owners listing.

Anyone got any good advice I am all ears. Thanks
