Yes they will be back. You shouldn't have any issue until you jump them a few times exspecualy if done fairly close together then you'll push them to nockturnal or just push them out.
If it were me I would stay out of there for a few days atleast and maybe try to avoid walking within a hour around the time you jumped them ( give or take a little on the time )

Once they bust you out in the tree a few times they will look for you. If it was around your camera you have no worries. They will be back. If it is does I would take out the grandma ASAP. The last one that comes out..... Old does get smart quick

Make a note to yourself about which way the wind was blowing and what trail they were entering the field from. Next time the wind is that way move to a point they won't smell you. Deer are creatures of habit and will use the same trails, while you got busted that time you can use what you learn from it to adjust and out wit them.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.
