Default How do you clear field of deer?

After hunting this evening I had a doe & her young one in a small wheatfield I was hunting. Could have shot her but I don't want to take the protector from the fawn. Anyway, I put on my pack & stood up & started walking onto the wheatfield as I had tied a tarsel gland (from last years buck) & I didn't want to leave it overnight along with a scent rag next to it. Naturally they "blew off the field".

How do you clear the field to leave or get your gear when the deer are around? Don't really want to spook them but what else could I do??

In my area of N.C. deer are grazers they dont eat in one place more than 30 mins so I wait them out.When the deer leave I leave.

I try to plan for these events while scouting and setting up, then sneaking off as quietly as possible. However their are times where nothing can be done but get up and move off. Though I try not to let them know my position of ambush and limit them winding me. It sometimes means waiting longer and taking the long route to the truck.

However tonight was one of those nights nothing could be done, with a NW wind,truck parked to the west, deer to the N, W and E I waited till past legal, snuck out the back of my blind and took a straight beed out. I ran smack into a group but by this time I wasa long waysfrom my blind, they bounded off to the N and I just kept on trucking. Nothing elseI could have done, I am positive staying longer would havemade itworse b/c only a matter of time that the E deer picked off my scent as they worked out to the fieldplus who knows how many more where just inside the bushline or out thatI couldn't see.
