It's how they hunt corn. One hunts the corn fields and the other hunts over piles of corn.

West TN has more deer. :D

In a nutshell:

I've never actually hunted East TN, but the terrain is much different there. More hills, hollers, mountains, valleys, ridges, etc to contend with. You will have to pay attention to the thermals how they coincide with the ridges/valleys. Hunt high in the mornings, and low in the evenings is the way I've heard it. East TN typically has more natural browse (acorns, etc) and foodplots, where was West TN has more farmland.

Plus, there's bears and hogs in East TN...West TN doesn't have them.

West TN typically is a little more flat terrain, especially the further west you go. West TN has a lot of flat farmland; soybeans and corn attract a lot of game.

I'm gonna guess deer are easier to drag in West TN farmland than East TN mountains. :D

If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

oh snap!! :lol: :lol:

Definitely would be harder hunting the mountains for the terrain alone. I haven't been yet but need to knock that off my list some day. Right now I don't even have enough time off work to hunt the spots close to home that I want to hunt.

Like this. Dragged this buck 300 or so yds out of these hills and hollers by myself, wo a 4 wheeler. No corn involved, whether feeding with plots or piles.

I know that but look at how much corn the LOCAL Wal-Marts sells every deer season.

As a fella that grew up in western/middle TN I’ll tell ya the mountain hunting can be a lot tougher , especially the dragging a deer out part.,, I like the hills but man those corn and bean fields were nice for a meat hunter like me

They're feeding the squirrels not the deer. Even posted a sign telling the deer to stay away............

The deer don't stand a chance against coons when it comes to corn.

Catman should come hunt our Jackson county lease

I hunt East Tn and it is like hunting back home in upstate NY.

The deer density is not even close to what west Tn has.

It is rewarding when you put a deer on the ground but is very hard work getting the deer out.

I hunt Pickett county as well but I'd venture to say 1 sit in west Tn will yield more deer than I'll see all year. I've got somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 hours on stand and can all deer seen on one hand. No bucks
