I get in my stand this am and smell a dead animal.
low and behold dead fawn 15 yards out into my shooting zone.
Car hit i think as i did not touch or flip over. looked a couple days dead.
How long will deer stay away from this dead one? when can i hunt that great stand?

I think it won't matter at first!! Then it will!! I found a deer dead 10 yards from my stand and camera...after the first week the stink was so bad, that my camera captured less deer pictures!! They went way down to less than 2 pics a day, and it was getting 8-10 a day!!

I ended up burying the deer...I didn't see a deer this morning either!!

I think deer see dead animals, including dead deer, all the time and it doesn't bother them, as others have already said. I don't think gut piles really make a difference for that matter either. Just my $.02.
