| | deer strategy??
OK, this is likely a dumb questuin but we're a little frustrated and I know you folks are a pretty kind group. Where I hunted Saturday the "funnel" which the deer were moving in the a.m. (generally from SE to NW) was a wooded valley about 250 yards wide....saw 4 bucks (all across the valley) but could not get a clear shot. My 13 yr old son and I were showered, clothes washed (in scent free soap), very quiet and camoflaged. That being said, it was like they knew something was different and just steered clear. Another factor, the wind kept changing. If I hung a pair of human scented pants (use your imagination) on one side of the valley do you think the deer would veer away or just turn around and go back?
