Nope, no deer left.


Umm, come to think of it I do know of one spot...
Drive down rochdale ave, pull into the post office parking lot and park facing the school across the street.

At just before noon, you should see ~10-12 deer moving toward your general direction from behind the school just to the left of the FDR bust. Usually mostly does, but a few bucks(even saw a thick 10ptr once)

Now be sure to stay in your vehicle cause you don't want to spook'em before you're able to get a shot off.

Some tips...
Leave your vehicle running since the deer have become accustomed to the traffic on rochdale and the sound of a running engine will lull them into a state of low alert.

Lower the window slowly, about an inch every 5 seconds so as to not startle any of them, but(and this is important) make sure you open it all of the way...smoke a cig it and flick the ashes out the window as you open it..it'll throw the deer off to what your true intentions are.

Slowly place your shotgun barrel out the window but try to keep as much of the barrel inside of the vehicle. If you have lowered the window all the way as I suggested, your barrel will be resting the rubber weatherstripping and you can steady your shot silently, otherwise it may rattle against the top of the window.

Try to time your shot between residents arriving to and leaving from picking up their mail. The deer are used to such activity and won't be alerted to your movements.

Try to take your shot right before they pass in front of the first classroom window. This will ensure a safe backstop(the cement block stone wall) and will force the wounded deer to continue 30-40yrds past the school after it's shot. You won't have to track a wounded deer and you'll pretty much be able to back your truck up onto the lawn and throw it in the bed.

Also, if the NJ state police should show up and do anything to try and stop you, tell em to calm down and that everything's OK. Tell them that a guy on the internet pointed you to the right spot so that you wouldn't have to put in the work yourself...hell, tell em he even saved you from having to track your deer. If you're real polite to the troopers, they may even help you to field dress the deer and escort you to the clarksburg inn to check it in.

P.S. shoot as many as you like but leave one or two for me...I'm planning on heading out tues...Good Luck!

Try to find the thickest, nastiest stuff you can find and thats where they will be if there are any left.Try on the backside of the lake it gets pretty thick back there off Nurko rd. or I have shot quite a few by the swim club. They cross alot back and forth across the rd right there.
