Will it hurt to drive my four wheeler right up to my trail cam?

If the four wheeler isn't typically driven in the area, I'd say don't do it. If the camera is along a two track road, and typically has four wheeler traffic, you aren't changing anything from what the deer are used to. Basically don't change anything. Don't disrupt the way the woods typically are.

I say its better to ride the 4 wheeler, less human scent in the woods. Deer dont mind vehicles as much as they do humans for some reason.

you are better off running the quad to it. Deer are spooked more by sneaky,smelly humans than atv's,tractors and trucks. It's common sense...don't want to spook a deer to the neighbor's property don't go sneaking around.
