Yes I likewise would go back the same day if the deer I took was alone and went down quickly without much disturbance. Where I hunt they come through hours apart and from different directions so I don't think it would be a problem. But sometimes it is best to let a spot cool down a few days.

I would. I think a couple of days is plenty of time to let the area settle.

Last year shot a deer as I was gutting a different one. Shot them both with a shotgun. You should be fine.

I shot the deer with my bow, so there was no loud noise, but I walked around in the area a good bit finding the deer and dragging it out, etc.
I would only hunt it if the wind was in my face!

Oh yeah. We got 2 Doe on Saturday from our ridge spot then on Monday we moved like 25 yards over and got 2 more Doe. The kicker, we had over 20 deer under and around us including some small bucks chasing does.....and they ran right by the 1st 2 gut piles.....didn't effect them....at least I don't think it did.....

Hell yeash man, I shot a big buck 7:30 am 2005 gun season, field dressed brought the fourwheeler in took it to the barn shot a doe 9:10 same thing doe 10:35 and my brother killed a even bigger buck at dusk that same night all out of the same stand. It all depends on your stand location and what the deer movement is in the area. As you can tell that stand in on the deer highway with a HOV lane to boot.

As others have said, the answer is absolutely YES. My question is if you have to be concerned about what happened a week ago, you may be giving the deer more credit than they deserve.
