You don't got to worry about them. They'll come back almost right away. I spooked some does once, a group of 7, and about 30 minuets later, they came right back in and didn't even look up at me.

It depends if you are hunting over a food plot or if you are just hunting a game trail. If its a food plot you can bet that the does will be back into eat in an hour. Yet, if you jump a group of does off a game trail they may not return to that spot for a day or more.

Depends on the severity of the spook, so to speak, the time of year, amount of hunting pressure applied and the topography of your land. I would say anywhere from 15 minutes to 5-6 hours. Either way, they'll come back.
