Deer smelt me but didnt see where i was is that a problem?

i was out in my plot today and theres a cabin out 50 yards from my stand and theres some rubs and stuff down there so i made a mock scrape to see if the bucks would come check it out well had the 9 point and a small eight down there checking it out and the 9 was diggin the scrape deeper and i guess he smelt my scent on the tree above, is that a big deal or will it keep the deer away from that area?

your scent is gone after a few short hours but the ground will hold the mock scrape scents much longer, depending on how much attractant you used in the mock scrape., but Now that you witnessed the Buck freshening your scrape with his own scent you can rest assured knowing he will be back within the next day or two, hopefully you will be there when he arrives..

Good Luck

If he didn't "RUN" away I definately wouldn't worry about it. He could just be voicing his opinion of who is in charge around there.
