While hunting week before last I came upon a dead doe laying on our ridge trail. It had probably been dead a week and a half or so, the body was mostly scavenged but there was still quite a bit of stink to it. She died about 50 yards from one of our prime stands and maybe 75 yards from another, while I can't smell the deer from these stands animals with more sensitive noses surely must be able to.
Any idea if her being dead in that location will effect deer movement in the area? Camera surveys in the area indicate nothing much moving, but I'm not sure the dead doe is the reason.
