in middle october, i had 14 bucks hanging out at my feeder.... i have over 1300 pics of them mostley at night... i have only hunted that area 3 times this year,,,, twice during bow, and once during blackpowder. i took a nice ten point during blackpowder. my question is, by shooting that buck, did i scare off all the other deer. i have only seen one doe and her twins since, and for the last two weeks,,... nothing... not one deer.... all i have now is a couple coyote's. i am wondering if maybe the yote's scared them off, or was it the doe that detected me. she snorted and blew for almost an hour strait when she caught wind of me. and i saw her chasing a buck off in the distance, then she came back and snorted and blew some more... any insight on what could have happened... and what i can do to get my bucks back???
If you think you outsmarted him, he will see you next season, and you will never know it.
