When should you stay off your deer hunting land? While deer managers and hunters alike may assume that you need to stay off your deer hunting land all year long, this couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, if your deer hunting land is managed well, the bucks that you hunt shouldn't be on your land during the off-season anyways. It is time to fully enjoy your deer hunting land, in particular from the day after the deer season ends, until about a month before it begins again. The more that you and your land are true herd influencers within the local neighborhood, the lower the risk for you enjoying your land during the off-season.
