Deer drives are an effective strategy to hunt deer, but they can be potentially dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken. The purpose of the deer drive is to make the deer move, but not run, out of their hiding places. The deer will move toward hunters positioned in strategic areas. Before conducting a deer drive, hunters should properly plan out their drive. All hunters who are participating in the deer drive should carry out the plan. Deer drives with more than six or seven hunters should be avoided because of increased risks.
