A lady said one ate her dog 2 weeks ago in Kansas city kansas and one was hit by a car in kansas city Mo last year. The conservation department said they are moving to this area because of the large deer populations.
My husband and I were walking our dog last Saturday night (Oct. 30th) on a road behind the University of Iowa Athletic Club in Iowa City and we saw a mountain lion cross over from Finkbine Golf Course to a heavy wooded area just south of the Finkbine parking lot (fthis area is FULL of deer). There is no question we saw the long roped tail and cat ears...it paused between street lights before it dashed into the woods... we filed a report with UI safety and security.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
