For sure if you keep blowing the deer out of the patch they will go nocturnal and you won't see any bucks till midnight. I don't know where you are hunting, but around here 4:30 is late to go to a patch.

Find a different way in if you can? So you're not walking through and getting yourself busted.

Get out sooner!!! You are only going out 1-1/2hr before it gets dark. You are walking in when you should have already been in stand an hour. If I am going to hunt the evening, no matter what time it gets dark, if I am not in stand by 2pm, I am not going to be hunting that evening. With it now getting dark by 5pm, I am in stand by no later than 1pm, noon if possible.
