I need Help!

Hey guys I am new to the site but have been hunting for ten years I Got busted this morning hunting a scrape he is a big mature eight point and I dont want him to abandon the scrape should I stay out of the stand for a couple days? He didnt smell me he saw me and the land owner said that the stand has been there for like four years I hunted it last night and a doe looked right up at me so I figured that I would use my climber and sit in a differtent tree if I was gonna go back but I am not sure if I should go back !Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks Ryan

the climber sounds like a good idea.the stand is probably well know to the deer.if the doe looked up she smelled,saw or knew from past experience.do you remember where you saw them coming from?set up closer to that spot with the climber and spray yourself down good with wildlife secrets scent killer

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

They say bucks will check their scrapes downwind at times. So if thats where your set up, watch carefully. He may come in right on top of you. Good luck in the morning..

dont know where you live but in NY once the deer got their winter coats on they dont really move once it gets over 45

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

Well I made it out again this morning And I got Busted Never even saw him He started blowing like crazy so I started grunting and he kept blowing running back and fourth about 60 yrds out,so I dont know if he smelled me or that he was just mad cause I was using tinks trophy buck lure and no decoy. So its back to tinks #69 and I am gonna move to the same end of the grassy area but on the other side of the trail.
