Depends on if you’re in an area where deer frequently encounter humans. They’ll flee, the come back once they feel comfortable again. If you’re out where deer rarely encounter humans, then you probably won’t see that particular deer again for a while. Busting a doe won’t hurt, busting a big buck will make you sad, because he won’t be back for a long time. On the other hand, if that’s somewhere that one deer was comfortable being, other deer will probably filter in as well. You won’t empty your herd, but you might spook that one particular one. Hang your stand and shoot the next one.

I was Spring turkey hunting in Western Md a few years ago.Around 11am a guy walks through the area where I was expecting turkeys to come from.I thought all was lost but not enough time to get to another area I stayed put.About 15 mins later a turkey(hen) came right through the same spot where the other guy walked through.

If it can happen with turkeys,it can happen with deer

Okay, thanks! I suspect just a windy day with the movement happening mid day when I was busy working. Pretty sure it is a good travel corridor. Right by a creek. Several parallel deer trails through the woods and crossing the pipeline all within about 60yds of each other. I shot a spike there start of his season. Saw a huge doe just out of crossbow range a few weeks ago. My neighbor saw another (same?) doe that general area, out of his range last weekend. I saw that one now a couple of days ago. He shot a spike there last year during the rut and saw a couple of other deer that didn’t present a shot that same day.

I probably just need to plant my butt there 45 minutes before first light and at some point something is going to walk by (hopefully in range).

Deer are funny, last yr my boy and I saw all kind of deer travelling in the late afternoon/evening but out of bow range. This yr same place same time with 2 different stands overlooking the corridor the deer are few and far between. One stand has been in the area for yrs I just turned it to face the woods, the other is new and about 100 yds upstream overlooking a corn pile The only other difference is this yr beans are in the field whereas last yr there was corn up.

I saw my first deer yesterday at 11am. Didn't see another one until after 3. Saw 4 bucks at that time. Seems like south winds always screw up deer movement where I hunt. Anyone else notice?

I saw the same, only one massive buck at 9am and no other deer movement at all. Usually I see plenty of them far away on other properties. Central MoCo.
