walking/stalking
#1
Anyone had luck hunting from the ground and walking in any of the WMAs in NoVA? I walked a lot around Thompson last fall and saw plenty of sign but no deer.

I've never hunted from a stand and would prefer to continue this practice but I'd also like to actually get some meat in the freezer this year.

Walking around WMAs stalking could be a dangerous undertaking.

It's not impossible but your odds will increase if you scout, scout and scout, climb a tree and then wait.

Yep....I think he'll be shocked at how many other hunters he'll be sharing the woods with.

I wouldn't go walking around. Scout deep. Get in early and then when all the morons that only like to walk 100 yards from their truck walk in or get up to leave at 9:30 it will run deer to you

If it is in season I will hunt it.

I went out to Thompson probably 8 times last season and only saw I think 6 other people so I'm not too worried about the other hunters. I was just interested in whether or not people had a lot of luck with walking.
