Need advice/help
 
So, I have a predicament that I can't seem to find a solution for. With the exception of opening weekend, every weekend and every outing of hunting I have seen the same deer, 7 times in a row as a matter of fact (I can only hunt saturday and sunday evenings). There are two does that walk through my property and every time they pass through, they walk in a different place. Now, I have been moving around trying to predict where they will go, based on where they walked the previous time I saw them. I have several places that I can go, I have a tree stand up above a big oak tree, a blind in another area then I also have 4 other "natural blinds" behind fallen trees that I can use. With all that I have there you might think I have a lot of land, but it isn't it's only about 8 acres. So, I guess I am asking what should I do? I can't seem to find a pattern of where they walk or anything like that.

Also, a few times ago I drew in a small 5 pointer with doe estrus urine, but I couldn't get a shot at him, of course there was a tree right at his vitals, I was so happy.

What i realized durin bow season in one area i hunt..it seemed like the deer would take a different route as to forage a new area (road if you will) than the day befor, but eventually ended up starting back at the 1st spot i noticed them at!!!they would only move another 20 yards or so down..and as i kept movin where they were each day, they went right by where i was originally..doh!!!!!so i missed out


moral: Stay where you seen them befor, they will be back!!

That's what hunting is all about.. If they travelled the same routes every single day they wouldn't survive very long. Humans aren't the only predator that can pattern it's prey.

At least you're able to pinpoint the general area they use consistently. Keep at it and one of these days their luck will run out. You just have to be in the right place at the right time.

Good Luck
