    In a tree now. Got my eab on the 14th I think. Up until then had 40 pics a day of deer. Now in tree checking my pics and have 11 of tree rats and coons. Is it because of my kill or do they just move on?

    Food sources change, right now acorns are dropping everywhere so they are probably in the oaks. They will be back.

    I was sorta thinking that but one reason I chose this location was cause of the oaks near me. But actually today sounds like less are falling.

    Is there a lot of hunting pressure, public land? That could also be a reason. As far as waiting at a spot before going back in after a kill, that's probably not a factor and something else is causing the change in pattern.

    Damn was really hoping it was the kill and would take time. Yeah its public but don't think too much pressure. See a few stands when I tried to scout but only once since the 11 have I seen another vehicle. Way out behind me is really thick brush and was a creek bed that was dried up. Maybe cause of rain we got it began to flow and they are near that?

    I don't see many cars and no stands but I know the deer have changed it up already. I've been old school scouting my area since July and they have been like clock work until last week. What you don't see is the pressure going on when you're not there, it doesn't have to be much, just enough that they decide to take a different route or bed somewhere else for now.

    Could be various reasons. I would believe they have changed their patterns due to food sources (natural and baiting). I once had decent amounts of deer coming into my area while my hunting partner had the same numbers. Then he started baiting heavily and decided not to...and my sightings dropped off quickly. He was hunting a few hundred yards away from me and it was amazing that in about 2-3 weeks the deer almost disappeared from my area. We did some 1 many deer bumps during bow season and that worked for me. So, yes, their feeding patterns probably changed unless you are in an area with a lot of hunting pressure.

    Its your entry route, or they are on the acorns and seeking out the better producing trees.
