Not funny

Big old doe has got my stand figured out. It's got good cover and is pointed directly the opposite direction from her. I even spray painted the ---- thing.

Maybe she smells the paint? I use to paint my ladder stands black. Not any more i leave them the gray color for now on. I usually paint them with the cheap .99 wal mart brand spray can a month before archery season opens. I experienced the sun baking the paint causing it to smell. In the middle of archery season on a warmer day i can smell it while in stand. I don't smell the paint while climbing in my stand before day light. I even spray the rungs with scent killer to help, but only helps for a little while.

No more for me painting my stands to blend into the tree. Since i stopped painting my stands, deer walk i mean almost rub up against the 1st ladder rung and keep going in the direction they intended to go vs when they got next to the stand ( painted) they got curious.

She is picking up on something that a lot of other deer did not.


A place I used to hunt had a hunter in one of two trees every morning during the season. By late October the old doe there would come up over the point and would look up in these trees before passing thru. The trees were about 80 yards apart. I only hunted the one but she would stand under the other and head bob like crazy. One morning I hunted a different tree back off and sure enough she came up looking at the two spots but never saw me. Ridiculous.

I've never seen such an immature and ridiculous reaction to getting busted by a deer.

Don't get mad at the deer. Get better at what you do.

Studies have shown older does raise more fawns successfully than yearlings. Since fawns learn from mama I shoot yearlings or 2 year old from a doe that looks up at my stands. Usually the younger ones pass first with mama in the rear so I am usually successful.
