OLD TIME DEER DRIVE ?
When is the last time you were in one or even heard one going on?
First of all,there are not that many people hunting anymore to get a real deer drive going.
I am talking with 20 plus people in it! We had them,years ago,that we had to have a rooster!
We had access to lots of hill country and open farm lands to push.
We had snow to! It was a lot of fun and bucks got shoot.
It would start around 8 am the first day and be done around 3pm. A good day would be 4 or 5 drives. Then on Saturday start again!
Doe season was the time it worked out good.no antlers to look for!It was tough to get a big drive then because there were very few doe tags sold?
This was in the late 50s and early 60s.
I can still hear the guys coming over a ridge,and a shoot once in a while,people yelling"THERE IT GOES!" Then a while later another shoot and a "I GOT IT!"
Oh,and we shoot deer running and no one ever got shot!
