Don't feel bad S.W.A.T. 33, I hunted last weekend and earlier in the last weekend in Sept. and I haven't seen a single deer yet. I think I know why though. I got out of my stand last Sunday morning at about 11:00 a.m. and walked the brush hogged trail north past my stand and found deer tracks all over and it seems they are turning right where a dead fall lays across the trail and their's a burm graded up there. The trail goes past my stand and then about 250 yds to the road, they use the trail as cover getting to the road because just out maybe 25 yds is an open hay field, however, I think they have spotted my stand and are using an alternate route. So, this weekend I'm moving my ladder stand and also my climber to different locations. I'm also going to be much more cautious entering my stand locations, i.e. using timber as cover, etc. Wind is a big factor. Deer have basically 3 levels of human scent they use. #1 is a small amount of human scent which they will tolerate and it doesn't initiate fear in them to the point they flee, #2 is when they get nervous, and you can tell this my their body action, i.e. looking up alot as they feed, #3 is they just "get the heck outa dodge!" Sounds like you have access to your stand locations fairly well covered, I would look at maybe moving your stand(s) somewhat, maybe into more cover, to the opposite side of the tree on which deer will approach, favorable wind locations, etc. Good luck and hunt safe!
