I question the legality of "getting a doe in the garden with a 22 short".
Since I own and manage several hundred acres, I have almost unlimited access to deer hunting. Since this land is surrounded by leased hunting land, it is not to my advantage to go stomping around on my side of the fence chasing deer onto other properties-so I don't unless absolutely necessary. Most of my deer hunting is done from established, proven stands which have been in place for years. Some are shorter range suitable for kids or amateurs while others require shooting out to 300-400 yards and wind plays a role in stand choice.
There are times when I do feel the urge to move around which I do occasionally when other hunters are not as likely to be afield. Here again, I use the many years of experience on the same land to decide the best avenue and approach to the hunt I'm making.
