Depends if its high pressured land or not. Most the land I hunt is highly pressured and the deer seem to bed different areas all the time. I very rarly find deer in the same location.
If youve seen them there multiple times I would say your chances are good, if it was the first time seeing them there it may not be a frequently used bedding area. Good luck.

In the cold weather they tend to stay close to the food source as they may feed anytime of the day. so the bedding area may be more stable than in the other times of the year unless of course as mentioned pressure or you bump them. MTH has a really cool way to hunt them.

if the bedding area is close to a food source i would hunt it. In the snow they more likely to be in the same place as were they bedded when the snow started due to there will be less snow in that bedding spot

I have found that deer have many bedding areas, some are hot some are not. ONly way to find out is to sit and wait. I have found 5 areas, 4 of the 5 are only used every now and then the other one is used every day all day.

They should stay as long as you don't spook them

It really depends on where you're located. Deer, especially mature bucks, will bed in different locations based on wind direction, thermals, weather, etc, etc.

Try hunting it. You never know. Worst case, you'll learn when he isn't using that bed.

depends...

I have found a few bedding areas where id say deer use them more then 50% of the time. These are thick, safe areas with easy escape routes and good terrain to use in their advantage.

Where as today when I took a walk...you find random beds. I kicked up a few deer up that seemed to be bedded at random...open areas. no thick cover. just taking a break perhaps.

If you have good track moving through the area id say give it a sit or two..
