Prime Hunting spot now destroyed... For now
One of my best hunting spots is shot for now. Its a 5 acre parcel that backed up to a couple hundred acres of unhunted and unpressured woods. Owned by a church. Lots of deer, lots of bucks and rubs.
I hadn't been there is a couple of weeks. I went yesterday climbed in my stand and as soon as day light broke the chainsaws fired up. Heavy equipment came rolling through. They had ripped a 20 foot wide path with 3 foot deep ruts in it. It zig zag deep into the woods and right through a prime bedding area. They are only pulling the hardwoods, but have really disturbed the land.
I'm hoping they will be done soon(before the rut), but I'm almost positive those bucks have gone noturnal for now. I guess I'll wait and see. If not there is always next year for that spot.Of all the things I lost I miss my mind the Most!?!?!?

The area I hunt was logged 2 years ago and I thought the same thing. Believe it or not it didn't make a difference to the deer, I killed a really nice 9 point in the evening in the area they were logging during the day.SAVE A BUCK--SHOOT AN OUTFITTER

If your stand is still in cover it might get hotter who knows? Ya it is'nt the same (which does stink) but your in cover right?
Sounds like a food plot on the making. You got seed for that "path"?

I had the same thing happen to one of my hot spots two years ago right before the rut. As it turned out it once they got done it turned into the best hunting spot I ve ever had.....to bad the land owner sold it the next year.
Hopefully they get it done quick. I bet once there done your hunting will be better than ever.
