Deer drive

So this is my first rifle season out in the woods. I'm sitting down in a nice little spot when all of a sudden I hear screaming, again and again. I walk to the other side of the mountain thinking someone is hurt or something to only find 8 hunters walking around yelling. Then it clicked, a local told me to try and land a deer before rifle season because people come from all over just to drive the deer during this season. Now how does everyone else feel about this, I'm just very angry and upset I've been hunting this same area from the first day of bow season not one person and now I can't even sit in peace and fear there will be no deer around.

Re: Deer drive

I like it gets the deer moving..deer run back thru the drive half the time so it doesent matter which way they r driving woods beats sitting there seeing no deer because lack of hunters

Re: Deer drive

Deer drives have been a tradition for years just like the Monday opener ,it can be very productive way to hunt and a lot of fun ,they have as much right to drive deer as you do to sit in the woods

Re: Deer drive

Sit tight a lot of the time deer will circle back. Had plenty of success when other hunters were conducting drives in the area.

Re: Deer drive

I like it, it gets deer on their feet and moving around. just stay put and let them push deer to you.

Any day in the woods or on a stream is better than being at work!!

Re: Deer drive

I plan my hunts in rifle season based on people being in the woods pushing the deer around.

Re: Deer drive

I'm a big fan of deer drives it gets the deer moving and breaks up a long day on stand.

Join a gang and drive deer it's fun.

Re: Deer drive

Drives. Its another way to get it done. My group usually does small silent drives. They work. I have also be the beneficiary I am sure of other peoples drives in the past. I let people walk by and stay alert you never know when they will push one to you.
