I’m glad you have a place to hunt!
Has anything changed in the area would have caused the deer to alter their pattern? Maybe new construction or a change in crops close by? If the habitat has remained relatively stable are there other factors that may be alerting deer such as new dogs, etc., in the area?
Deer often do a better job of patterning us than we do patterning them? I try to approach, hunt, and exit my stand without alerting deer.
As the winter progresses and food resources become limited hopefully deer will return to using the area around your blind!
