Many hunters worry about getting busted while on stand. Most people think a scent bust involves blowing and tail waving and running of deer. But I believe most scent busts happen without the hunter ever seeing it or knowing they were busted. The number one scent bust in my opinion is the bust of the trail to and from a stand. I was lucky to catch a doe busting my trail in the other day on video. I try to keep my boots in pristine condition and seldom have a deer react negatively to my trail in, although they are often aware (especially older does) that there is a ground disturbance. In this case the deer is unhappy with the situation, and changes her mind about approaching me. No blowing, no tail flagging, no running, she just quietly changes her mind and takes a different route.
