I use a 4 wheeler on some hunts and my 4 wheeler has never been a problem during a hunt,
deer get used to hearing and seeing them in the areas I use my 4 wheeler so it's not anything new to them not in those areas anyway.
I usually park about 200 yards away.

If people normally ride 4 wheelers on that land it isn't a problem. Don't give them too much credit. Especially Does

Deer are pretty smart, but I still see a lot dead on the side of the road. Catch my drift.

Around here the deer are pretty used to the 4 wheelers and such. Some will stay and look as you go by and others will bolt. But I always see the deer after riding in. I used to park a little ways away but now with that new exhaust system I have to park much, much further. But if there are other 4 wheelers riding around your area then the deer pretty much get accustomed to them. Oh and welcome to the site Chad.
