My land is REALLY REALLY thick where I have access to it, so my brother and I were going to attempt to make some trails using one of those troy bilt mowers. If I did it within the next month, would that drive all the deer away? The only reason we are doing it, is because when we walk to our stands, it is almost impossible not to sound like a herd of elephants coming through. The neighboring land is being clear cut as much as possible for farm fields, so would it be unwise to start making noise on our land? The Mississippi River borders their land, so our land is the deer's only real area to go to get away from that.
