Well don't know.
I was watching Dr.Kroll the other day and he found that Gut piles don't bother Deer.
But years ago we was having problem with Deer eating up our Orchard.The Conservation Department hung Road Killed Deer around,didn't work.They tried Cannon,didn't work.Then the only thing to do was kill all we could.
But we was seeing up to 80 Deer in a herd.

What are the GPS Coordinates ? [8|]

I would think if the dead Deer carcass was drawing in Coyotes it would scare other live Deer away from the area for a while?I've seen where Deer turned away from a trail that a coyote walked on.

No idea how she died.  She wasn't there two weeks prior to my finding her. She was too far eaten to find any sign of why she died.  We've had a lot of dogs running the area lately - but I can't say for sure.  We've also got a couple of bobcats that hunt the place.  She was in the middle of our property so I'm reasonably sure she wasn't poached.  Particullarly given her location.

I shot a buck on a food plot early in the afternoon and left him lay because I couldn't haul him out until after dark. I had deer feed all around him until I got down and walked out to pick him up. Also I was on my way back to camp one night I drove up on a gutpile in the middle of a dirt road and had a large buck standing there over the pile. He didn't move until I was just inches from him, after he ran off I got out and looked,It was the skull,guts,hide and back legs of a buck and from the hocks I would say it was a buck in full rut.

I'm not really disagreeing with you fellas but listen to this. 2002 archery season I shot a large adult doe, double lung, and she ran just out of sight about 50-60 yards away. She was only my third bowkill and 15 yards was too tempting! About 20 min later I see a deer running through the woods starting from where i lost sight of the doe. That deer happened to be a nice 7 point who conveniently did a button hook to look back at where he came from only 10 yards away me when he finally stopped. Couldnt resist him either, he became my first buck. The Doe expired as you guessed it, right where i lost sight of her. Which leads me to believe that the buck walked up on that dead doe and spooked. So maybe they can get scared just maybe not so often? Maybe its the scent of freshly spilled blood?
