I would rather live on water and drive to an unimproved hunting tract (if money was no object). I still don't own property outside of a house in the burbs

You might love it but my guess is the deer won't for one reason: pressure. If you're in the woods all the time (even not hunting) they'll get to where they know your comings and goings like you wouldn't believe. On a small piece, too much human activity can definitely influence deer activity.



I find the opposite to be true on my property - I'm in the woods almost every day - walking or on the four wheeler - they, the deer, have come to understand that I'm sharing this area with them and I'm not a threat - (most the time ;\) )

I can drive by them on the four wheeler when bedded down on the hill side, and they'll, for the most part just watch me, if I stop and turn the four wheeler off,, they take off, but as long as I keep to my 'normal' routine - they are ok with it -

I also shoot quite a bit as well, and I find that this has little or no effect on them, the seem to know that it's not directed at them -

I find hunting on my own property, where I live, rewarding I've become very in tune with the land and how the everything seems to interact with everything else - where the predators live - how the deer move based on the crops around my area and water availability etc -

I say enjoy and learn -
