Anyone think this hapens in their area
On my way to work, I often see the same group of three deer in a field. Lately the number increased to five and then six and seven. Yesterday, a guy I work with said there were about twenty deer in that field when he passed. I've noticed that sightings of deer around my house have gone from very few to none as the season has gone on. The field is about a half mile from here. I've come to think that maybe deer from around this area are driven by hunting pressure (which is high here) out of their territories until all the deer in maybe a couple square mile area all end up in one place (in this case in and around the field). I assume they migrate away from the pressure of hunters, all end up hanging out together in a place of relative safety, then wander back to their home territories as hunting season closes. Anyone else observe anything like this?
Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.
