How many of you hunt near the areas you deer hunt? Of course I don't mean hunting over your feeder, but within 200-400 yards. My family is growing and I need a few more areas to spread out a bit. I have an area about 300 yards from my feeder that was cleared to place a pump jack. Too close?

Hunt all you want, won't affect the deer. I've had dove hunters blasting away and 250 yards away from the field I have a corn feeder, deer feeding while guys shooting. Been doing it 16 years here and have never noticed that it hurt any deer hunting.

we hunt it a few times for the first couple of weeks. just make sure you are not to close to a feeder so the GW cant get you for baiting.

I had a deer walk right thru the middle of a pivot field that had 9 guys around it blasting away and it never broke a trot

Stay away from feeder "Game Warden" but shotguns couple hundred yrds away wont bother deer. My brother hunts squirrels all around his stand/feeder don't affect deer at all.

Hunt the water holes early in the season. Doves (and deer) need lots of water this time of year!

To state it simply ---

it wont bother the deer,,,, the game warden will give you a ticket if he wants to,,,,, how many yards away from the feeder is not relevant.

I've had my last 2 GW here and checked out my set up with Deer feeders and Dove hunting. My closest feeder to a field is about 200 yards back into the woods. Both said the feeder was fine as long as no one hunted around it. Another GW might feel different but I think intent goes a long was.

It's up to GW discression. No rationale. Can ticket u if feeder 500 yards away- if they think it's drawing in dove

That is correct but unlikely at 500 yards away.

Define too close. I went to google earth and I'd be roughly 350 yards away from my feeder and you cannot see my feeder. The property has several new pump jacks and one of those has a cleaning the size of two football fields. Just so happens this area is loaded with sunflowers and dove.

Guess I should call the GW.

Yea, call your GW, that's what I did. He came out and looked at it in relation to my field and gave me a thumbs up.

We hunt fields and tanks on our place. Feeders are hundreds of yards away but not drawing the dove in.
