    15-30 miles if I want an okay hunt. If I want a “good hunt” that spot is about 35mi. Further yet (65 mile) is a spot that is always super hit or miss. Can be a real barrel burner or you could not fire your gun, it’s about 50-50 out there. I’d say average drive time over a season is 30-40 mins behind the windshield.

    22 miles from my driveway to the boat ramp at a public reservoir. Then another 1-3 miles on the water.

    2-3hrs one way. My best goose field was 7 minutes from my driveway, lost it to houses/school being built on it.

    Depending on location for ducks and geese 30 minutes to a little over an hour.

    Turkeys and deer can be out my back door, but I’ll travel for turkeys also.

    Had one place for years that I still luckily have. It's under an hour. Had a great lease for over a decade that I lost. For several years it was 20 minutes, then we moved and it was about 35. Still miffed about the lease loss even though it's been a few years. I had ducks, deer, sometimes turkey, fishing, ATV....but I'm thankful for where I can still go.

    I could get to public land within an hour but avoid it like the plague.

    Drive time to boat launches (all our hunting involves transport in a boat) is 25 minutes to an hour and a half. Mostly about 45 min.

    Ten minutes to the camp to meet my hunters, ten more minutes to the boat house and ten minutes by boat to the blind. Got wore out just typing it.

    Ducks: this year, I'm not sure yet. Just found out all my walk-in spots were picked for "permanent blinds" this year on the one CoE lake I typically hunt. So I'm off to find new places

    Geese: anywhere from 15-45 min
