I'm gun hunting only. I hunt with a Browning 30-06 Semi-Auto with a 3x9 Tasco Scope. It's been 4 weeks since I've seen a deer. I've seen 3 rubs and few fresh deer tracks. The tracks are leading out of the field into the woods. The deer aren't using the field like they were. The deer are going to the food plots across the road to eat then getting shot. I think so far the guys across the road have killed 2 4 points, a spike, and a another deer put they couldn't find it (possibly the 6 point my buddy saw). Yesterday, I hunted where they cross to go to the food plots. Still nothing. I think they bed down in the day then ramble around in the night. My buddy hunts in a tree stand overlooking the ridge where they cross. He said the only thing he's seen is a spike Monday. Our main problem is attracting the deer to the field. What makes this problem even worse is they're logging about half a mile away. With the trucks in and out, sawing, banging. It doesn't look like they will be coming out.
