Does anybody have any experience with fox hunters during deer season? I'm interested in hearing your opinion about fox hunters and their impact on deer and their patterns. Thanks

anybody going through the woods that the deer see or smell will affect their routine, positively or negatively. there aren't any fox hunters around here but there are bird hunters, dog walkers, sunday afternoon strollers, bike riders, you get the picture. i would be thankful for fox hunters. not so much because of the deer but because they play heck with turkeys. trapping is the method of choice around here for fox. why? are they messing up your deer hunt? i guess i'm just wondering why cause thats a new one.

I'm in a hunt club, and a member staged a fox hunt. The farm looked like a carnival. There were 50 dogs, dozens of horses and trucks everywhere.

I cant help but think that these hunts -- all throughout rifle season -- negatively affect the deer and their patterns. I agree that is helps the turkey.

i have no experience with this but i would think with that kind of army storming the property the deer are long gone,will they come back?who knows others hunters may have gotten them cars,predators etc.they basiclly did a HUGE DRIVE.they shouldnt do this during deer season unless you got standers waiting for the deer

Good points guys.

I've seen a lot of deer out there, but after that fox hunt at dusk, there were no deer -- not a surprise. I forgot a fox hunt was going on that day, so that was my fault. But I'm glad I got to witness what a fox hunt was all about.

That day -- between 530pm and 6pm (almost completely dark), I heard 3 separate shots from different locations, probably within a mile. I can't help but think that hunters nearby may have shot at deer that were pushed off our club land. :wallbash: It's the 1st year of our club, so I expect that this event will be a hot topic.
