Hunt, like mentioned deer will blow at a lot of things.

Had a deer blow at me 2 weeks ago hooking up my strap to my harness onto the tree. Probably 30 yards behind my stand. Just thought to myself "I get blown at while in my stand already, its pitch black and just wait till its light."

an hour later I had a buck on the ground and a few more deer still walking in on my with my dead buck less than 30 yards from them.

Default I'd either

hunt the stand and wish I'd moved or move and wish I stayed put!

As we all know, rut changes everything and several times, either on my way in or out ,I've actually walked right into/through a chase-& I mean close as in feet.
From what I've seen, deer have more important things on their mind during rut than a guy w/ a stick in his hand and funny clothes on!

Default It's going to be a real dilemma

as hunters get busted by deer at their one and only $5000 condo tree stand tower hunting palace. They'll be too much invested in time and money, to give it up quickly, I suppose.
