Whatís your go-to move to get deer to leave so you can get out of the stand without educating them of your presence?

No joke, I just start talking and yelling at them that Iím ready to leave. Never once had one deer actually run off but they walk away slowly, looking in my general direction until theyíre out of sight.

I throw a water bottle outta my tree at them. (I've actually hit one before) After they run off outta sight, I start barking like a dog to make sure they leave. Then climb down. So far it's worked like charm.

The remote car is a great idea, especially for coons or turkeys, those turkeys can clean a feeder up in no time

I've heard there is a member here that just casts devious glares in their direction. Not sure how well it works, but sounds simple enough.

Then just squeak your chair, they will either leave like always or get use to it and stay.

I too use a hog recording on my phone. Got an app off internet. The angry boar sound works best. Used it last night. Worked great. Turn the sound up real loud.

I always carry a suppressed 22 pistol to shoot coons off the feeder. One morning I had a new suppressor for it and wanted to see how bad it would spook the deer. I waited until there were 3-4 does at the feeder and fired a round into the ground at the base of the ladder of my stand. None even raised their head. Emptied the magazine, and finally they looked up and just wandered off.

I normally crank my grunt call down to the deepest grunt I can make. A few hits of that normally gets them to wander off expect for the occasional stupid yearling.

Best thing I've found is that Primos call app... open the waterfowl app and start all the goose calls and duck calls going at the same time... Deer down South absolutely haul arse when I start that thing... When we were on the Moody ranch out west on the Rio Grande, it worked well there too...

Explain what waiting until dark will do? The deer can still see you.
