How many of you guys will be driving deer this coming week? I have a small group of guys about 12 and we do some small drives around zones 35,28.

I will put small 3 man drives on during the week and will participate in a bigger drive at the end of the week.

Those small 3 or 4 man drives seem to work good. Do you have a guy or 2 in a stand when you do the small man drives?

Oh man, touchy subject, I know, but I don't like deer drives at all, especially those big club drives on public land. If you are doing drives on your own private land, no biggie, but in my experience, alot of those drives run out of land to drive real quick, and posted private land becomes a "quick hit". I bust several groups trying to drive posted lands every year during buck week, and more and more frequently during permit season as well. Drives and baiting seem to bring out the worst in people.

I know drives can be productive, I just hate it when they "produce" on lands that we have posted...and we are not the ones doing the drives.

It's illegal to use any electronic device to rally game.
Page 30 of the Hunting Digest states No electronic calling device. Is there somewhere else in the game codes that say no radios?

No! 2 way radios, cell phones etc. are all legal. You can't use electronic calling devices for hunting!

I have just read the Game Laws in full. It does not say you can not use radios.

I have done 1 man drives with some success that is one driver and one stander. It works particularly well on Moe mountain in Wayway. The stander is in the hardwoods above the hemlock ravine. The driver walks a contour line in the ravine occasionally using a snort call. This moves any bedded deer in the ravine out to the hardwoods.

Noooooo!!!!
A calling device does not mean something that you use to call another human. A calling device is a call to attract game.

Electronic game calling devices are legal for crows & predators. I use one for coyotes.

Deer Drives [down] . Just my two cents and am not knocking anyone that does it .

More or less talking about the club with a bunch of guys and NOT talking about a two or three man drive .

A huge group of guys pushing the deer is just SHOOTING DEER and NOT hunitng . Just my two cents worth about 1

We do them with a large group, I don't like them but they do produce deer.
We use radios, know where our property lines are and the posters are all in stands shooting down instead of level from the ground.
I'd much rather sit in a stand and wait but the deer have become so smart that the first sound of any gunshots and they head for the back yards. [mad]

The drives do produce by getting them out of their hiding spots. [up]
