Default Will Turkey Hunting in the spring hurt my chances in the fall for deer?

If I am going to huntvery close to the same spot for turkey and deer will my pressure and possible gunshotshave an effect on deer using the same areas in the fall?I say no that everything will return to normal by then.Just asking if I should be concerned.

Not at all. Same goes for deer hunting affecting turkeys in the Spring, it wont make a difference.

If you're smart (don't take that the wrong way)....it may actually help. Take note of the woods while you're in there. What you see in the spring is what the woods will likely look like when your season opens.

I honestly don't care, I like spring turkey season more anyway.

I gotta agree with Jeff though, it won't be any different than, and can be utilized as, just another scouting trip.

No worrys, usually the deer are on another pattern in the spring anyway compared to the fall.

I shot my buck this year 50 yards from where I shot my Tom in the spring! Won't bother a thing!
