I was under this same school of thought, so we headed out for an evening hunt. Mid-morning, my friend who owns the property text me with info that she had 8 doe hanging out in the hay pasture between her house and the dried up pond we hunt over. I figured that once we got set then the odds were on our side. Oh how wrong was I? We sat for two hours watching a blue heron fish the little bit of water left in the pond. At 1645 hrs we had (what sounded to be) a deer moving close behind us. Just at the point it sounded like the deer would walk up on the side of the blind, it sounded as if it turned and walked away from us to our Southeast. The good news it that it never winded us and it seemed to walk away calmly, but we never laid eyes on it. Confusing and frustrating since we had deer all over us a little over a week ago in the same spot. Back to the drawing board I guess.
