So what's your take on pressuring deer? I always hear people saying, leave a spot alone so you don't pressure deer out of a certain area.. I hunt in a area where the deer are used to human activity, the persons property I'm currently hunting on cuts firewood out of there this time of year, damn close to the areas I hunt (although I talk to him the day before I go into hunt to make sure he's not pulling wood from a area I'm hunting that day). I still see a good amount of deer and it doesn't seem deer avoid those areas at all.. I've actually seen more scrapes and rubs right in the areas the land owner is pulling most of his wood out of than I see any place else. The land owner has literally taken firewood from the same place 3 days in a row about 75 yards from one of my stand locations, only to see fresh scrapes and rubs there the following day. Last year hunting on the old property, I walked into my stand location and seemed I would kick this same buck everyday, only for it come back the next day. I personally don't think pressuring deer is as big of a issue as some make it seem, or maybe it's just the areas I hunt human activity doesn't affect them the same and as long as they don't sense any danger entering a area they will still occupy it rather than letting one occurrence make them not want to go to that spot for a extended period of time. What's your take on pressuring deer? I personally feel as long as you're not doing something completely silly in a area all day every day or going in and tromping around and creating unnatural things for deer, deer will still occupy that area knowing there was human activity but as long as they don't sense danger they won't completely avoid it. That's just my take on my experiences and have always felt that people claiming hunting a area over and over will pressure deer out of a area is a bit overused. Because frankly if the deer never knew you were there to begin with, I don't see how that will pressure the deer out of the area. I can bust deer walking into my stand only to have the same deer I busted show up in the same area I busted them 30 minutes later. I'm not trying to say people are wrong, I just don't have that type of experience where I completely ruin a spot and deer don't show up at all just because I was in a certain area or hunted a certain area for multiple days straight.
