straight piped powermax to loud for hunting?

Hey guys I was wondering is my truck is to loud and it will spook all the deer?


The spot I go hunting I drive through the field and woods and I park my truck about 1/4mile from where my stands are.

I never really thought about this when I was doing my mods...

In my opinion and from what I have noticed, engine noise has little to do with spooking deer. I have driven up on and by deer with 4 wheelers, tractors, trucks, etc. How spooky the deer are has more to do with the amount of hunting pressure in your area. Either way though if your truck stock didnt spook the deer in your opinion then it still wont spook them with an aftermarket exhaust.

they are more than likey not going to be be spooked by truck noise they hear it daily. I drive my truck with a 03 turbo and i still see deer all the time in the stand

Maybe head to the stand a little earlier that way things to get settled down quicker

Here is our problem out here NM. When hunters put pressure on the deer and elk they hear or see any vehicle they take off. Now on the 4 wheeler they stand and look at you for a long while then walk off. I put my stock muffler back on, all it did was make it a little quieter and took away the growl I love. The turbo is still loud at 1500 rpms.

Exactly! It all has to do with the amount of hunting pressure the area that you are hunting in sees. If you are in a high pressure area, the wildlife associates machines (i.e. trucks, tractors, atvs, etc.) with the hunters and spook easily and it wont matter whether you make your machine a little louder or quieter in all reality because their ears are way keener than ours are. So if your machine spooked the deer before you made it louder than it will still spook them and if it doesnt spook them as it is right now then it probably will still not spook them. I wouldnt worry about a little louder exhaust deter me from helping my truck sound/perform better. JMO.
