I usually ride very quiet (and by myself most of the time) so can get to the deer as close as 5 feet or so. There are LOTS of them around and they don't care that much about horses.
Appy, check with the park department of your state/county. They have info on area and dates for hunting season. I was told the WORST time to ride is couple weeks after Thanksgiving (when there are lots of drunk hunters around :roll: ). Best to go in the mid of the day, and (thank God!) I havn't heard about any accidents in area...
