That's funny, right there.
My hunting group routinely
hunts a 12 acre plot, 5 of which is unhunted open field/cabin with 5, sometimes 7, people. We're talking 1 acre per person here.
Sometimes a couple of us are on neighboring properties so we are hunting maybe
50 acres with 5-7 people.
We also have a small lease that is just barely 100 acres TOTAL and at least half of it is open field and a solid 20 acres of it we never touch, so we're hunting maybe 30 acres with as many as 5 people.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
