    How do you determine the best time to move in a treestand archery hunting when a deer is approaching? At times I hardly move and spook them and other times I can stand, get my bow and get ready and they never see me.

    Either wait for the deer to look away or to put his head down to feed or put his head behind a tree or if you have leaves or cover in front or to the side or wherever the deer is wait for him to get behind that brush.

      I always try and judge if they are walking fast, the noise level in the woods, mature or juvenile deer, etc. All those play into when I'll pull the bow back. The fact that you're spooking some is all part of hunting, you shoot some and you spook some.

        little more.... whenever I see a deer approaching I always stand when it's safe (noise of a plane overhead, gust of wind, etc.) Even if they're far off I will stand so I won't have to make all the commotion of standing up when they are close. Pulling back the string is the tricky part because you never know when they'll move into that clearing.

          Like Louie says, only move when the deer are looking away or are behind a tree. Deer are hard wired to watch for any movement, you move when u can see a deers eye or eyes, they will bust you.

            If you can see a deer's eyes, he/she can see you, simple as that, even if 100+ yards away. Deer are attuned to pick up abnormal motion - like you standing up. Don't move until the eyes are hidden from view - either when looking away, hidden behind a tree, or head down.

              dont forget that the deer your looking at might not be the only deer looking at you....Ive been busted a couple of times by being too focused on the deer I intended to harvest, and not noticing those sneaky darn does that always seem to come up from behind your stand when you least expect em.
