    Has anyone sat by a fire in the woods and seen a deer and or have it come in range without it being spoked. Same question using a blind ( I have had a hen walk right behind mine last turkey season so I think with Their eyes being sharp deer wouldnt notice

    Sitting by a fire. Only in a camp or state park. And in a blind, yes I have had turkey walk within feet of me during the spring season, if you blend in well and dont move you can get really close to turkey.

      For the deer, you have to get past their sense of smell and thats tough.

        I was actually standing right beside a small fire burning some TP and sticks and wearing all black under armour and i had a buck come 20-25 yards from me. i would have killed him but the flintlock misfired. as for the blind while turkey hunting, i do not feel they should be used unless you are bow hunting. i regularly have birds within feet. sit still.

          My brother and I were catfishing one evening and had a dow and fawn come down to water about 30 feet from us. They saw us but didn't seem to upset about us standing there talking.

            I've had turkey hens practically in my lap with no blind, but have never had a deer come close while I was tending a fire. Deer will go right back into a prescribed burn area while the stumps are still smoking---curious, I guess.

              I've had deer come right up to me when I would have fires in my grandparents woods in Ohio in the spring and summer. I think they were generally used to it and they knew they wouldn't be bothered. BUT, come deer season those deer were nowhere to be seen. I have had turkey come up within feet of me in a blind as well as sitting beside a tree. Just don't blink!

                Never had deer stick around too much. This past turkey season in a state wma I had nine turkey hens come to my calling and stay within 10FEET of me and my brother kneeling in the middle of a clearcut and talking just to see what they would do. they didnt care but the gobblers wouldnt get anywhere close

                  I had a doe come within 20 yards of my campfire. I had a radio playing rock music also. She didn't spook until I tried to sneak to my camera.

                    by FirstBubba
                    So far, I've built a "bee vacuum" and a "swarm trap".
                    When I deploy the trap this spring, I'll need at least one hive....I hope!...
