Does anyone have any land to hunt/share in lower Fairfield county CT. Only looking to bow hunt. Very professional with experience. I work in lower Fairfield county and live up at the top, by the time I get home its pretty much too late hunt. Was hoping someone had a spot they wouldn't mind sharing with me that I could try on my way home preferably New Canaan, Ridgefield or Danbury. Hard to get any evening hunts in these days working 9-5 and commuting an hour. I would share any meat and am not opposed to paying a reasonable fee if the land is worth it. Small private lots adjacent to larger ones will do. I'm not very picky. Just want to get a few cams in there before the rut. Any help is appreciated. Thank you all!!

A few of these towns have programs to connect hunters with landowners in an attempt to lower the deer population.

I wonder how I would go about finding this out.. town hall or more of a call to the deep?
I would think that your F&G could help you out. There has to be people calling and complaining about the deer destroying their plants or property. Wouldn't hurt to call and check.

Plenty of State land down that way. Centennial watershed permit applications come out every year on 6/1 as well

I know there are a few state land spots here and there, but im not a huge fan of leaving stands and cams on state land. Had some stolen from me in the past. And since this will be a quick in and out on my ride home maybe an hr to 2 hrs it would be best to be able to leave a stand.

If you work 9 to 5, it seems to make more sense to go in the mornings. It is very dark here at 6:30pm in NH right now, so probably earlier in the woods.
You will get lots more time hunting before work I would think, near home.

this was helpful. I reached out to a bunch of contacts on here and already had one response telling me that they forwarded my information to a few people. Hopefully it turns into something. I will let you know.. Thanks again.
From the research I've done, its critical to present yourself as a professional to these people. Most of these landowners want less deer on their land, but they're uncomfortable with hunters. Once you get that accomplished, you could have a honey hole for a long time.
