Default Getting down from your stand

Anyone got some good hints on how to get down from your stand when the field you are hunting over is covered in deer.

I don't want to educate them to my location. So far I have been taking a handful of rocks up and then at dark I start chucking them around everywhere till all the deer have deserted the area.

wait till it is totally dark use no lights and walk out like an animal (hunged over with your arms hanging to the ground)

Have a buddy drive with headlights on(if possible)or walk to your stand. My buddy andI text each other if we still have deer on stand after dark. I haven't had an instance yet where both he and I have deerinour area simultaneously. May be a problem ifyou're both hunting field edges simultaneously.Works great and the deer don't get edumacated.

Keep sitting until it's dark (if hunting the evening)

Ive "accidentally" dropped an item from the stand before...the loud impact usually spooks them out of shock and they run off, climb down and get out quickly and they are none the wiser.

best bet is to wait em out.

Bark like a dog or do your best coyote.

Usually throw my water bottle way up in the air, when it comes down they go away. I have done this hundreds of times in S Alabama where if you do not plan on shooting a doe you almost always have to get down with deer on the field. Sometimes you can wait at the edge of the woods and shine a flashlight and the field is full again.

I've used a coyote call (my turkey locator) and have had them run before.
