Id say of you have a shooter in that area, then there are more. You now know where those two hunt-so do the deer. Look at your map and find the thick travel areas that deer can avoid them and hunt there. Public pressure can be used to your advantage.Well I'm kinda at a loss right now... I been hunting this same deer for 4 seasons now on public and have managed to keep him to myself. Well earlier this year I noticed increased pressure, and just kind of blew it off. Yesterday no one in there, slipped in and found a guy 50 yards away, who came in nearly 2 miles from a different access, he told me he knew about that deer.... ok he was there first so I moved areas. On way out I run into a different guy at dark, who came from an even different access just over a mile, and started telling me all about that deer. Apparently a buddy of his has it on cam, and has been telling EVERYBODY in Hope's someone can kill it. I got irritated and left.... now I'm trying to decide if he's worth dealing with the increase in pressure, or cutting my losses and finding a new deer.
