while in my stand. Had a HUGE buck come through about 60 yards away. I could not get him to come in though. I think the deer are getting a little weary of me in that stand. I jump them all up every night when I climb down and walk out...I cannot help it b/c they are all right around me. I'm seeing less and less of them.

    only 25? wow, the only time i've seen 25 deer in one hunt was when i bowhunted in west virginia.

    try taking something up in your stand that you could possibly drop, or throw, to make noise to scare the deer away. that way they leave before you climb down. they will get spooked once they see you in the same spot more than a couple times.

    good luck, it sounds like you are in a hot spot.

    39 and counting...

    move your stand to spot that is close to the one your using now, but maybe down close to where they are or something.

    Where are they bedding at night? At all costs you should avoid bumping bedded deer!
