Im just wondering when would be the best time to put up my deer stand. Lots of deer in the area and im just worried about making to much noise and pushing them out.
Hello NBduckhunter. I agree with the earlier posts. If you've got a spot picked out I think the earlier the better. Deer will take some time to get used to the new stand. I try to assemble as much of it at home or away from the location and carry it in by hand if possible. Also putting it together with large lag bolts (pre drilled holes) or other means saves loud hammering in your deer woods. I also use scent control and quiet entry and exit while scouting and/or hanging stands. If you do bump a deer they will come back as long as there is something for them, ie water, food, cover, etc...another thing if you plan on using a ladder or other means of getting into the tree I put it out good and early too. Deer will adjust to each new addition as you bring things in. the more comfortable they are the better chance you will have.Im just wondering when would be the best time to put up my deer stand.

Well hopefully it brings me some of that luck with itDont give these critters too much credit. I put this stand up 3.5 hours before all this happened. I put the stand up in the rain at noontime and seen a small buck in the process. When the rain stopped I decided to go in and hunt. I brought a bucket of apples with me and then the rest is on video.
Some people think deer are the smartest animal in the woods. I disagree strongly. I trap a lot of different animals and hunt alot of different animals and I think deer are easily the most predictable animal in our neck of the woods.
