For the first time all season, I got busted by 2 does today. Then again, I wasn't in my treestand like I usually am. I was standing by some heavy cover, and as I slowly turned around, I heard and then saw 2 does snort, wheeze, then take off of. They were like 40 yards away from me. I'm not sure what they picked up on. It could have been one of a couple of things. Either my movement from turning around, or being downwind of me. I'm tending to think it was the first because if they winded me, they wouldn't have come as close as they were.

Next time...

Deer will sometimes come close to find out what is there. They could have smelled you and was walking in to see what you where when you moved.

But That goes with the sport of hunting....
