There are plenty of things one can also do on public property that can enhance hunting and hard health.[/QUOTE] What can be done on public land to enhance hunting and herd health?. I don't hunt here in Washington Staten to expensive and not that many deer do to predators. We have three apple trees,I take buckets of apples up in the Cascade Mountains where wewere go shooting and leave them for the few deer that are there. I also buy table salt from Walmart, 52 cents a pound in one pound containers. I pick up ten containers and dump half (five pounds) at one spot and the other five pounds at another spot. I will pick up another ten pounds tomorrow to place at a couple of new spots. I don't know if it helps or not, but it doesn't hurt anything I guess. I will probably buy airline tickets next weekend to take my grandson to New York for a week of squirrel hunting September 26th to October 6th.
