Un pressured deer are very difficult to find after being pressured.

Good Luck!

Deer numbers are on the decline in Virginia. Between muzzleloader and rifle, a hunter could legally take 110 deer in 55 either sex days of hunting. What herd anywhere could sustain that over several seasons?

I hunted in Kentucky this past gun season (zone 1) you are only aloud to take one buck and no doe and all i seen was three or four doe and not a single buck. That was on almost 100 acres of woods, fields and cover crops. So I was wondering if the coyote are to blame because they made them selves heard every night that i was there.
