Spooking the Deer..Please help
 
I have a stand on the edge of a corn, clover field. Around 5:30pm the up to 15 deer enter the clover from the corn and feed. I have yet to have one come within 50 yards. Close but no good shot yet. The problem is every time i exit the stand at the end of the hunt..after dark.. I spook the deer. How can I hunt these deer? They are not moving through the woods, there bedding in the corn!
Any advise.. I want a doe.. Cant shoot a buck for the first 2 weeks.

Doe Decoy. Make sure there is motion.

DIY - ever had success with a doe decoy on does?? Asking as I've only had negative reactions by does to any decoy. They've backed off and blown/stomped on every occasion.

decoy could be an option, but there are 4 bucks also moving in the area and i dont want them to bust me. Where i live we can not shoot a buck for the first 2 weeks of the season.. Very stupid rule!
Lat night there were only 4 out in the field. I think after being seen a few times, they are not coming out like they did before. It is going to rain for the next few days. Ill give the area a rest but i think it will be luck if one walks by...I may have to set another hanging stand in another place

Would also try a lost fawn call in that situation.

I have a true talker...never had a lot of luck with it. Had a few small bucks stamp their feet but thats it. Maybe ill try to use the faw distress sound. cant hurt. Thx

Wait until the corn comes out.

Move!!!!!!!!!

Move is right. I looked for another place, but would have to set up a ground blind. They know where i am.

Well I wouldn't hunt it until the corn is gone like Rockport said. All you're doing now is educating the deer where your stand is. BTW, you really don't need a stand or a blind to bowhunt deer. I've shot plenty just standing against a large tree. The trick is to only move at the right times. Or you can get yourself a little stool and place it by a nice sized tree and put a little brush around to break up your outline.
Save that stand for later in the year.
