Do you have any tips on how to hunt small game on public land during deer season and still be courteous? Should I consider doing more mid-day rabbit hunts this year? I've noticed between 12pm-3pm WMA's are mostly empty. Noon isn't a great time to hunt squirrel but rabbit hunting still may be good at that time... My fear is that I'll start rabbit hunting a field that someone has been overlooking in a stand since 5:00am, and I just can't see their stand. Rabbit hunting can be really noisy, and I can cover miles and miles when squirrel hunting. What, other than simply not hunting, can be done to enjoy public small game hunting while having no or minimal effects on big game hunters?
