Why did the deer change their pattern?

I am hunting private property on a farm the owners say the deer are in the field at around five every evening I have been Four days in a row and have not seen a single deer what could be making this happen


There are several reasons deer could have changed the time they feed including:

1. Changed weather conditions.  Deer are very responsive to changes in weather conditions.

2. Something alerted the deer (either a two or four legged predator).  Did you scout before you hunted and/or was the wind in your favor when you hunted?

If you didn’t alert the deer I’d give it another try soon!
