  • Does Raccoon Hunting impact Deer Movement?

    I do not want to start an arguement on the forum, but for those that realize that shared use of land is becoming a bigger issue and for many clubs adding small game hunters to your deer lease for 'after deer season' hunting is a great way to increase revenue for the club without adding more deer hunters. I have attached a study by the SC DNR which seems to point out that sport raccoon hunting has minimal to no impact on deer movement. Hopefully this scientifically conducted study will help get a few coonhunters access to land, even if it is after deer season...
    Hope everyone is having fun fishing this spring!
