Default busted............... now what?

The deer i've been hunting busted me on his way in to tend a scrape. What should be my next move? Hunt the same scrape and change stand positions? lay-off awhile? Kinda new to bow hunting so any advice would be great.
Damn and all he needed to do was take a few more steps and whack!

Back off the scrape. Chances are if he checks it again it will be from down wind. You can also move toward the direction he came and again, be down wind from it so he's not downwind from you. That's a tough call though, might be some time until he comes back. If you have other locations to hunt, might be time to give that one a rest and let him get comfortable about returning.
