Our lease is being logged out right now. How will this affect my hunting in November?

As long as its completed and they've removed their equipment you should be overjoyed when November rolls around. Clearcuts are whitetail magnets. If, however, they're still around come deer season, you're screwed. I can speak to both circumstances from experience.

Best of luck to you.

I agree with the previous poster.  As long as the loggers are out of the area in time to let the woods settle down, you should have a good year for seeing deer.

my experience is a bit more mixed than that. it seems to me that it depends on what they log off.  one area i hunt they cut down the brush the deer'd been bedding in and it completely changed their patterns, trail that had been extremely active only weeks early no longer saw use. 

on the flip side, for the first couple years after logging the deer will feed heavily in it.  for a few years after that they'll bed in it as it'll be the thickest brush.  often the first year can be a little haphazard as the deer adjust to the new environment, but thereafter clearcuts are typically a boon for hunting.

remember, whitetail are NOT true woodland creatures, meaning that in the large swaths of thick heavy woods whitetail concentrationsare the lowest.  whitetail are 'edgeland' creatures meaning that they most inhabit the area between large forested areas and openings.
