Default evening hunting

I've been bowhunting in the mornings and evenings.....I never really hunted before in the evenings,because I didn't want to deal with tracking,gutting,just taking care of the deer after dark.....at my stands(feeders) the deer come in right before dark...I've been clapping my hands trying to spook them away so I can get down from the tree stand without getting busted....

How do you get out of your tree stands with deer in the area??do you just wait them out or what?....thanks in advance

It may not be an issue,because I'm going to start harvesting them.....the heck with this head hunting....:banghead

I bark likea dog if I see any deer around me. No scientific proof but it seems to work for me b/c I can go back in the next day and the deer will not be spooked. Is it starting to get cold up there yet Bill? Talked to Dad the other night and he said most of his leaves are already off the trees in Fort Wayne.

TRY A COON SQUALLER OR AN OWL HOOTER THEY HAVE WORKED FOR ME AND THE DEER WILL GET A LITTLE CONFUSED AND NERVOUS AND USUALLY WILL MOVE OFF.
