    I can't use a four wheeler, either unless law enforcement gives me the OK to take out a bruiser black bear.

    Depends on who I'm hunting with. The boy and I walk up the hill, but my cousin and my F-I-L aren't in the best of shape. When they're down we tend to take the truck, but I just bought a UTV this year so that will probably get used to drop them off on stand.

    1/4 mile to the stand. Only use four wheel to haul corn and deer. I could ride mine anywhere I want where i hunt but I don't. I use it for hauling because I have a bad knee. And I need my knees for work.

    LOL! Can't use motorized vehicles where I hunt.

    Depending on the property I'm hunting, I'll either get far enough away from the road that my 4-wheeler is out of sight and then walk from there or drive on in and park within a couple hundred yards of where I'm hunting. I have hunted off the 4wheeler as jhjimbo does, but rarely do so as many of my preferred hunting sites don't work well for such a method.

    As a side note, in my county it is rare to get more than ½ mile from a maintained road and 40-160 acre parcels are the norm.

    Most of my stands are within a couple hundred yards of old tote roads. I always walk in but the walking distance depends on the wind and which stand I select.

    Jimbo, the woods looks thick. Did you blasé out shooting lanes?
    Maybe we should look for a sale on a four wheeler for brother Pig Hunter?
    He could take in a cot and a sleeping bag for an afternoon nap after lunch. ?

    I am on a little 10' high hill and off to the left is actually where I get the deer. At the bottom there is a small spring where I keep a mineral block, then a grassy area for about 80yds. That is where the deer come from and then 10yds from me make a turn to go around a beaver pond and go out of sight. So, I have a lot of 20 to 30yd shot opportunities.

    Since I hunt private land, I can drive my golf cart to within a couple of hundred yards of my chosen stand. On some stands, due to terrain, I can get a good deal closer than that without fear of spooking game. I always park and approach from downwind.

    How far can you shoot in that spot? Looks a lot like where I hunt except without the snow.

    I haven't fire up an ATV in a couple of years now...welk, NOT to hunt anyway.
    I can park within a quarter mile of any of my stands.
    A quarter in and a quarter out and I get my half mile walk in on hunting days! LOL!
    Yeah. Age, a metallic hip, crushed heel and a half dozen other old breaks and walking hurts, but a quarter mile stroll through the woods makes me feel better! LOL!
