During the early gun season I missed a doe with my muzzleloader. I think the same group of 6-7 does came in this morning. They came in and munched around but stayed out of my openings. It is really thick! Well I thought they all had wandered off, so I climded down from my stand(had to get home to meet someone). Right when I get to the bottom step I look back and 2 of the deer were hidden in the thickets and were staring right at me. They did the normal stomp/blow. They were fairly close so I started to inch toward them. Right before I could get a shot they bolted. So I think I have been busted 2x by the same group of does. Should I let the stand cool for a while, or do the deer have a short memory? Thanks, sslopok Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
