Default Big Buck Secrets/Tips for pressure areas

Here is one I learned by watching the door knobs across the river.

If your hunting land is close to where guys gun hunt, setup a stand close to where they enter the woods to go scout during bowseason.
I have watch big mature bucks slip out right where they entered, and all within 2 mins of them entering the woods.


Keep tabs on where your neighbors are hunting, they will affect deer movement on your property.

Most important when they ask if you have seen anything, always say "Just a few does and fawns"

I'll vouch for that. I've seen two big bucks that lived in such places. One near a gate that had to be moved... and the other that lived behind a beagle pen. The chain on the gate, and the howling of rabbit dogs was enough to alert these deer that somebody was coming.

I have a different way of sharing hunting property. I ask the other guy where he wants to hunt. Once he has his stands up, I get as far away from him as possible. Whenever I talk to him, his hunting clothes smell like bounce fabric softener. (Must be a new buck lure) I figure if the deer know where he is, they will be someplace else.

I'll give yours a try this season.

Good point!
I've been keying in on this the last few years and it has worked for me.
Especially around the homestead hunting in the bedroom community.
The Deer tend to know our routines as well as we do and adapt just fine!

To prove this, I had a friend who walks out his door to hunt 60 yards from his house in a little funnel between a major road and a swamp.
So I set my trail camera up and it was amazing how many pictures I got 20 minutes after he left his stand to go back to his house.
Including a very respectable 8 pointer.

John I like yours.
I tried it the other way. Putting my stands up first and letting him know where I was. It seemed I always ended up hunting in the same section of woods as him that way.[:@]Now I give him first choice and take what's left. I end up being not nearly as close to his stands this way.

Also hunting away from property lines can help with this too. Everybody always wants to see whats going on on the other side of the fence.

Another tip is get off of the field edges and back in the woods. I would say 75% or more ofhunters hunt field edges only. You can avoid most of them and see more deer in daylight back in the woods a ways.

Here's one I learned watching the door knobs across the creek.

Sometimes the big mature deer go out the other side of the woods. Sometimes they go out the left side. Sometimes they go right. Sometimes they just slip to the side and hunker down and let everyone walk by. LOL The best bet of all is to do your own scouting, find out the who, what, where, when and whys and put up your stands.
