When deer hunting, I'll always park about 200-300 yards away from the blind at a dedicated spot that is ideal for parking a 4 wheeler or truck. Somewhere it hides the vehicle and is far enough away to help avoid any smells. However at night when we hunt pigs, I often park right behind the stand. Pigs don't mind either.

Had this conversation with a buddy always drove the ranch truck to his stand. Told him the deer prolly had HIM patterned said they weren't that smart. On a bet told him I would walk in after he left and hunt his stand. I saw DOE and a nice buck. He didn't believe me because I didn't shoot it. LOL

I use my road feeder to corn the senderos. I park in thick brush right by the stand. Never have I not seen deer.

Hey drive my ranger to within 500 yards. See plenty of deer. I have a 4 wheeler too but itís useless for hunting, in my opinion. Itís just for riding

always had better luck when someone dropped me off at my stand. Walking or driving seems to have the same affect.

If I walk into my stand I scare the deer off, I drive right through them on mine. As long as I don't stop they will just walk away a short bit and return after I pass. This is an area I corn the night before.


You have to remember, they might not be drinking as much as we are.

I park my four wheeler in the brush right next to my stand after corning roads. Doesnít hurt a thing as long as I give it a little time to calm down before feeders go off. Deer often come out at the sound of the atv, especially mule deer.

I do. My spot is around 4-5 miles from camp and I always park just as I enter my area and walk in. After I got my buck I may drive all the way in and use it to corn the road in my area which is 240 yards to the end of the road from blind to my South and 200 yards to my North feeder. See lots and lots of deer and hogs that way. Some that never would have gone to the feeder but stop and eat the corn in the road. Sometimes they are eating before I get back to my stand and even had some trot off into the brush and right back into the road as I walk by.

1974 ranch hunting Jeep. Corn the one road to the stand and going away for another 200 yards. Park it there. Makes more noise than the feeder and half the time the deer are there before we are!!!

We have oilfield trucks driving around all the time as well as a guy checking cattle so our deer are used to seeing and hearing vehicles. I have parked a couple hundred yards away also and right behind my stands and can't tell any difference in deer or hog sightings, including mature deer. If it's not moving, the animals don't seem to mind at all and the gas wells smell enough that the animals are used to smelling machinery and oil/gas.
We started using the Feedsync remotes this year and wait about 15 mins after getting into our stands and then set the feeder off and we have animals come in within minutes. Having watched deer move into brush many times when a vehicle passes on a road and then step right back out after it passes.

I hunt my own small ranch and check cows, fences, fill feeders, spread corn, work on stands, etc. from the Mule so it's like furniture to the wildlife.
I sometimes park right next to ladder and step right off mule onto ladder.
Sometimes I park a few hundred yards away and walk last part.

If I drive right thru feeder/open area and drop corn, the deer/pigs/varmints don't seem to pay the scent any attention.
If I walk thru area and drop corn, deer don't mind much, pigs get pretty nervous and varmints hold up in brush.

Shoot I plan on hunting from my UTV in the morning - park it under a tree about 150 yards from ambush site. I drop a camo net over it and brush it in, and sit in the comfort of my Wolverine with front windshield up. Otherwise it's fully enclosed, mobile blind. Not too worried about the noise as my neighbors and I run ATV and UTV. I'm more concerned with scent control and wind. I know this is the height of laziness - but when the forecast is calling for high 20's I would like to be someplace a little more insulated and comfy, with cup holders.

I love the deer to pattern me as I drive up to my stand and park. They hear me scattering corn on the sendero and are usually out feeding on it before I can crawl into the blind.

Once i learned that i didn't "NEED" to kill something, and that if i did kill something all the fun stopped and work began, i was a much better hunter.

If 4 wheelers are used on the place year around by the rancher, the deer are less likely to pay any attention to them. Our guy that rents the pasture from us is on it daily with his 4 wheeler checking the cattle. If it is cold or raining, he is in his pickup, the deer are used to both, but the deer also know the difference between his vehicles and ours.
