    Welcome to the site.
    No. Only landowners with 10 or more acres may hunt deer or turkeys with landowners permits. Less than 10 acres, you need license which comes with 4 tags and small game. And for gun season, you still need private land tags, but don't need written permission on your own land.

    Can you hunt firearms on 8 acres? I thought there was a minimum.

    For rifle 10 or more acres is required.

    Legal Firearms:
    12, 16, or 20 gauge breech loading shotgun loaded with single soft alloy projectile ammunition. Rifled or smoothbore barrels allowed. Centerfire rifle 6mm (.243 caliber) or larger or revolver .357 caliber or larger may be used if the landholding is 10 or more acres and the landowner has authorized use on the consent form. To use a revolver, you must also have Revolver Deer Endorsement for the current season. Muzzleloading rifle or shotgun, .45 caliber minimum. Single projectile loaded from muzzle end. Telescopic sights and shotgun converters are permitted. No minimum acreage required for shotguns or muzzleloaders
