What should i do?

8 posts in this topic

i had just found a good spot in a fairly small hunting area in the metro that gets alot of pressure from duck hunters and also bowhunters. i went out in the morn. a few days ago and saw one doe. i had seen a lot of fresh rubs and scrapes and it looked pretty promicing. i went back tonight and there were even more scrapes. i didnt hear/see anything all day and was getting out of my stand at dark and out of nowhere theres a nice buck about 15 yrds from me and bolts off. can i go back there and if so how long should i let it sit

Go back. Just change trees or move a bit. On public land trying to "rest" a spot is useless because someone else will be trompin through there.

Exactly - where's he gonna go and not run into pressure somewhere, unless you're near a sanctuary of some sort. With the rut kicking in soon, you never know.

with the rut kicking in if your seeing hardly any does theres a large possibility that the buck you seen will be leaving the area looking for a hot doe no matter what the hunting pressure is

I would try to hunt as much as possible Thur/Fri. With the weather, falling temps, rut and hunters moving deer around the next couple days are going to be your'e best bet to stick one. Keep at it, good luck.
