Default hunting with cows?

the 2 places i've hunted, both owners rent out the land for someone to keep their cattle on, and the cattle always seem to venture to my stand while im in it. i do my best not to spook them because i'm never sure if there are any deer around but are cows in the area a bad thing or whats up with that?

You're probably in a great spot. I've seen Deer many times grazing with cattle, As a matter of fact, about 20 years ago, one of the biggest bucks I've ever seen was grazing in a pasture with a bunch of cows,
by the time I eased my way through the woods to come in behind the deer, he had already drifted into the woods and outsmarted me..
be very careful if one does come into range, don't risk shooting if a cow is too close to the deer...

Good Luck to ya....

Cows are OK. It's the sheep you have to look out for. They'll climb right up in your stand and wool slap ya!!Seriously, though.....cows are tasty.
