hey man and welcome to the site. it sounds like you have some tough hunting in your part of the wood. i like your scent control and earliness to the stand. so thats not hurting you. timberghost had a good idea about trying to find a funnel somwhere. is there any known food scources on your land? im also wondering how long you stay in the stand and how many days have you hunted this land? it is odd to me that with all the deer crap around that you havent at least seen some deer but the same thing has happened to me in the past. maybe you have a bunch of nocturnals on your hand. who really knows. it does not sound like your doing anything terribly wrong. deer hunting can be tough but if you stay at it the deer will eventually make a mistake.
