    Really, the gun activity doesn't push deer out? I've always wondered as I have permission to bow hunt some farms that I know will be good goose spots as well but I can hunt birds in many places that I can't get permission to hunt deer so I didn't want to blow them out.

    In VA, Goose Season from September 1-25, September Teal 17-30, bow season starts Oct 4. Then early duck oct 10-13, november 15-30 and december 17-jan 25. Will probably duck hunt mornings during deer season. Goose comes in and out in nov and dec-jan too. Can't wait. Planning on goose hunting next Monday September 1.

    I deer hunt till the end of deer season on January 31st. I switch to ducks between deer and turkey season. You can hunt ducks on a fowl preserve in Alabama into March. I usually go a couple of times in February with some guys from my deer lease. We have a great time and it satisfies my desire to go duck hunting.
    Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me,

    The gun shooting doesn't seem to bother or push the deer away. This weekend in MI I duck hunted a flooded picked wheat field. At 9.30 in the morning, after much shooting, we watch a decent buck work the far end of the field. A half hour later, 2 does make their way towards us.

    Nice. Well I haven't had a chance to get the duck decoys wet but we have had a few good goose shoots. Figure I've got 12 or so in the freezer, killed 15 or so from 4 or 5 hunts. The Corn field next door to the house is loading up with them so i might sneak over Saturday morning and wake the neighbors. Getting ready to head to our lease in Missouri for bow hunting next Thursday so I'm pretty busy getting organized, working, spending time with the family and taking care of honey-do's. Once it starts to get cold and the little ponds freeze up my duck spots get good so when I get back from Missouri it should heat up around here!

    I started off in my teenage years hunting waterfowl and I love it. Anymore though I prefer to deer hunt because deer puts more meat on the table. I still find myself hunting waterfowl when the opportunity comes.

    I love to grouse and pheasant hunt. Which runs right in line with archery here in pa. During the early season, I hunt a stand in the morning and walk a field for birds in the evening

    I have a German shorthair and all of my good grouse land is my bow hunting land... Needless to say the gsp is more of a house dog than intended!

    Our duck season doesn't come in until the Saturday before Thanksgiving and our archery season starts on September 15 so I have plenty of time to get deer hunting in. I just got back from scouting a little swamp this morning.
