deer here are not bothered by farm machinery at all. have seen them when out combining get up, move over a row or two, and then go back to the original spot and lay back down.

ACPTim, its legal as long as you are NOT riding in or on the combine. have seen this tactic used over here by me on some big deer.

nice mass on the lope.

My uncle and his farm hand used that strategy on some deer here also but actually with one of the farm trucks they use every day. Seems the deer were used to the truck and saw it as a non threatening vehicle that is until one got some aluminum poisoning HA HA.

So true last year I wound ride my Ranger often on trails I made. They were used of seeing me they would just go about what they were doing. So in firearm season I stopped and got out and shot a big doe at 25 yards with my pistol. My dad and uncles told many stories about walking along side Bob their farm horse and getting in range to shoot geese and ducks. I guess water fowl doesn't know how many legs a horse has.
