I once had a doe stop one step from my shooting lane and from a distance there was a hot air balloon slowly moving our way. Sure enough five minutes later the balloon flies overhead, lets off it's loud burner and the deer takes off on a full run. I love hunting out west or mid-west even. You don't even hear planes never mind cars, dogs, neighbors on cell phones, cutting grass or running leaf blowers. It's suburban NJ hunting. ---Welcome to the boards

I feel your pain. I've been there. I hunt the burbs and love it when I have a chance to get out away from civilization. I usually have stray dogs, car horns, leaf blowers, going on. Though the deer are used to the noises, they will still startle from them. And that can botch your chances.

can also add to your chances. I remember motor cycles helping me on a stalk. A chainsaw running by me to think the deer were safe. A guy in his shed not knowing push deer to me.

Stalking is one of my best modes of hunting and so many no longer do it. Slow and quiet goes the stealthy Indian. And speaking of indians, the hatchet head I found may not be a hatchet head.
