Perfect time to be exploring new country . This is why you put time in the off-season finding multiple places to hunt. I canít even begin to count how many places to hunt deer or elk on a given day. Itís probably over 100 spots

What do you guys think about actively logging in an area you normally hunt?  Weekdays itís no brianer but what about weekends?  They go back normal for the 2 days?  Iíve hunted both scenarios this week opinions are appreciated.

I thought you werenít supposed to hunt active logging sites?

No idea?  Whatís the reasoning behind that?

Private timber companies probably donít want vehicle traffic interfering with their operations or gunfire near them.

When you buy the Weyco keys they prohibit hunting in the active logging areas and often have the roads nearby shutdown entirely.

the deer don't like it when the trees fall on them so I'd stay out of active logging areas :IBCOOL:

Those deer had to go somewhere. Typically the loggers donít haul them to the mill with the logs. Start by branching out to surrounding areas. Iím assuming thereís still timber around somewhere?

 :chuckle:
exactly what I was thinking maybe there is nothing left around there.

Sometimes things like this are a blessing in disguise though... Good luck and I hope you find a new better honey hole soon.
Lead em if they're running.

We got to our favorite spot this year and it was all down, too. I feel your pain.

I had a bummer of a late season...hunted an area since 2013, seen one hunter in all those years, now crawling with people this season. Really puts a crimp in your confidence when you have to try and find a new spot mid-season.

in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

I wish a lot of my spots would at least get a thinning cut.  A bunch of clear cuts would be nice, but maybe not if they spray them too.
