Default problem being winded by big bucks

Looking for some advice... On the very rare occasion i have a nice buck coming in towards me, once he gets into 40 yards he always seems to be able to wind me...
Do i need to draw when hes at 40 and if they start to get scared shoot... I have no problems being winded by any other deer, i have all scent lok and rubber boots and face mask.

If he's on pins and needles at 40 yd.s when ya shoot, hes probably gonna jump the string. Just be ready. good luck

That's how he got so big. Seriously, if the deer is winding you, you need to change stands, or hunt when the wind is right for the stand you are hunting. No amount of scent lock or sprays is going to help if he gets down wind.

i had a lil buck lip curling 25 yards down wind of me last night. weather.com said NE winds but they changed up to SW 30 mins before sunset. i sprayed some buckbomb doe in heat and he stood there 20 minutes and had 6 does behind so i was stuck lol. had another little buck working 2 does my way too. it was a good night out. all in all counted 14 deer within about 80 from me. and i was sitting on the ground 7 yards from the road. i like the easy access and i can only hunt 1 acre but luckily nobodys allowed to hunt the neighboring property about 300 acres total.
