Default Do I need to move my treestand?

As I neared my treestand this morning, about an hour before sunrise, I discovered that the deer were already there, they snorted at me and thenthey ran. Do I need to move my stand now or not?I'd really hate to move from this spot because there are numerous rubs, scrapes, and tracks.

No I wouldn't , the deer didn't bust you while you were in your stand they busted you when you were walking to it.
If they had busted you in your stand every time they came to it then thats when you should move it.

I have a lot of deer traveling by my stand set up and I also spooked one out this last Saturday morning while getting to my stand. About an hour later the deer started showing back up, including a 6pt, 7pt and an 8pt. I wouldn't move, just make sure you get in your stand as quickly and quietly as possible.
