If duck hunters are spooking ur deer, maybe you shouldnít get out of the duck blind and hunt over a deer feeder in the pasture up

Seriously, every time I hunt I hear them blasting away 10-15 minutes before legal time. Fortunately I think the deer on my place just donít care. Nor do they seem to care about dogs barking, donkeys beying, tractors humming or many of the other myriad noises I hear almost every time I hunt bang

That's my only gripe also, shooting early and late. Most of the Duck hunters I am friends with are pretty selective about the Ducks they take.....

I guess some duck club dug a new pond near my place. I've been there 20 years and this was the first year i heard sky blasting going on. Then, for the next 10 minutes, we got to listen to them finishing off cripples.

I do both and unless they are sitting on your property, duck hunting has very little to do with bothering deer. Stub, you are just upset that the shots wake you from your slumber. wink My son and I were duck hunting and had just shot when this swam through my decoys 5 minutes after a shot. At one point he walked 5 yards from the boat belly deep in water.

I like duck and deer season overlapping. It keeps the deer hunters that also duck hunt after they tag out off public lakes for a while.

Just a guess, really, and they didn't bother us much. My guess is based on the initial volley of fire, then about 10 minutes of silence, then sporadic single shots.

Spot we duck hunt in Oklahoma we have deer come through right after we've shot, we've actually been amazed about how little they paid attention to us. I'm talking just a few minutes after we've shot so they were close by and walking through like they didn't have a care in the world, has happened a couple times.

I hear quail and duck hunters all the time. The deer on are place pay no mind. I had someone on a neighboring property doing some target shooting (100 rounds or so) and the deer still showed up.

I bet a lot of it depends upon many factors. Small acreage versus big, how close are the hunters duck & deer, when do these areas start getting pressure etc.

Common sense would rationalize with bigger tracts of land and hunters further away the impact is probably nill versus a lot of hunters on small acreage real close. In my scenario the lots are small and there are a 3 deer hunters on the 160 acres where I am at, I am on the east 80. To the west of those two on 40 acres there can be one or two deer and duck hunters and on the 80 acres west of them are serious duck hunters that have way to much fun, surprising how loud those I guess 3 1/2" magnum shells are?

It has spooked deer off where I am at while hunting.

Like I said earlier, just razzing the Quack Hunters up

I hear ya, as I mentioned before just giving them a hard time.
I have zero problem with anyone hunting legally and ethically!
May not agree with everything but it is what it is.
