City Deer vs Country Deer
I was sitting in the treestand this morning mulling over the above question. In NC we are in the "Urban Archery Deer" Season. It is for participating towns and cities to knock back some of the urban deer. I am within the city limits of Kannapolis, NC on about a 10-15 acre piece of woods bordered my a neighbourhood on one end and a busy street and golf course on the other . It is weird watching joggers jog by at o dark thirty, watching traffic, police cars, kids playing and shrieking, basketballs bouncing somewhere in the distance. Just weird. Yet, the squirrels are still here, the red headed woodpecker still drums the trees, the bluebirds look pretty, just a real study in contrasts.
As far as the deer goes, have not seen one in three partial days of hunting. They are eating the apples and corn I have put out, and there are a couple scrapes, one fairly fresh. So I know they are here. Probably nocturnal.
No matter it is good to be in the woods, no matter if I see one or not. It is also fun watching the guy across the street play with his van, then play with his old time 3 wheeler, then back to the van, and so forth. Hearing the machinery on the golf course. Just kinda different from the farm land I usually hunt.

I have hunted the mountains above Los Angles almost all my life, it is a weird feeling to be stalking a big Mule Deer and hearing the cars running down the drag strip at the Winter National in Pomona Ca.

Farm land, U.S.A. here. Planes, trains and automobiles...That was movie, wasn't it? Illinois 100 is about a mile from our house, so it the train tracks. The county road borders the entire east and northeast of our property. I've been skunked and then I've killed out in 5 minutes. I never spend more than 2 hours in any of our deer stands. Might be 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening. Did fall sleep in our big stand and walked home in near dark....
