What is the farthest you would drive to deer hunt?... "Drive"... aim
I apologize if my posts upset you.

I make the trip from Tyler to Paducah and Childress occasionally. It's a hard trip to do for a weekend hunt though. Roughly 6 hours each way

Unless it is for something like mule deer or huge white tail, I wouldn't drive more than 1.5 hours.

I just drove 8 hours each way to hunt for a Sika deer last month. I think the longest drive one way was 18 hours, from CA to Colorado. I've done quite a few 12 hour drives one way. But if it's farther, I've flown.

I drive about 3.5 hours routinely. That's close enough that I don't "have" to stay overnight to go check feeders & cameras.

Probably no more than 5 hours unless it was a great place, then just double it to 10 hours.

Driving to hunt is no big deal, I drive the 13 hours back and fourth to AZ to hunt predators more than a half dozen times a year. Gas is cheap and highways are good. Just schedule not to hit Albuquerque at rush hour.
