so you are in your stand, legal light has just ended, and there are deer all around you. Do you climb down and head for the house and take a chance on spooking them from that spot. or do you sit and wait until they move on no matter how long that might take?

I ask this because its happened to me twice in 3 hunts.

wait...and wait.....and wait.....sometimes i pick up acorns if i am hunting a flat and i take them up a tree with me and if i get in that situation i wait till it is pitch black and start chucking them at them...they usually move on after getting pelted..walnuts work good too.

I've done both. These days its a lot easyer for me to wait em out. I'm old and its to much work to have to move a stand and I put to much thought into which tree would be the best. I hate moving unless I'm busted.
