True story of suburb deer.......
About 4 years ago, I was cutting roads through the timber for an ASA style 3-D shoot. It took me two days of hard work. I went through 10 tanks of gas in my Stihl Prosaw.[
As I would drop a tree, buck it up, and move to the next tree, I noticed a growing herd of deer feeding on the treetops I had felled........they were staying one tree behind me!
At times there were as many as 6 deer feeding within 10 yards of me with that high reving saw going wide open![&:]
But, if you try to walk in there without making all that noise......they run like their tails are on fire.
BTW, I personally believe that if you cut a noticable shooting lane....a mature buck will shy from it. Unless he is following a hot doe.
