I have 47 acres i hunt and own and when i hunt my stand i park my atv about 200yds away from my stand and walk the rest of the way. I dont know if or how many deer i spook going in and out but usually get a deer every year. I guess im asking how far do yall park from ur stands when ur hunting?

Right behind it to 1/4 mile. Depends on the set-up and how much room I have to cut a garage out of the brush. Plus, what's between me and the stand. I never hunt one of my stands unless the wind is in my face, so I'm ALWAYS parked downwind of the stand, feeders. We have 24 stands, though.

I hunt 85 acres and usually walk everywhere as to not spook anything. Sometimes I use a jon boat and trolling motor to cross the property. Id recommend you doin the same if you can get to your stand without walking the entire property. Also depends what part of the state you hunt

For me it all depends. Some stand we park 50- 75 yards from it because the Polaris is at the bottoms of a hill and out of sight. Some stands we park 150 yards away. But where ever we park we make sure it's not in a direction the deer typically come from and is completely out of sight if your sitting in the stand.

I hunt 77 acres and park at the gate and walk into the middle. So about 450 yards. I will say that this is the farthest that I have ever walked to a stand. The guy on the next property over parks at his gate and walks 100 or a little less to his stand.

Depends on where hunting. In far W TX some of our sets we can pull right up to the blind. In E TX I park just inside the gate and walk to any of my stands on the 200 acres.

I park within 20 yards of my blind when rifle hunting. The deer just are spooked at our place. Had to throw rocks at the deer inside my pen just to get my buck I shot last year.

I hate driving to stand and it's only a 1/4 mile away. My dad on the other hand, just when I am getting ready to go, will say "give me a ride to the stand". His stand is closer than mine and he can walk there perfectly fine. So, I drive him to his stand and then go back and start walking.

My property is rectangular in shape and my stand is on the end with a power line rightaway going across the bottom. My legs wont let me walk to far so i need to be resonably close but we have very thick cover the whole way to the stand.

About 10 feet from my stand. I hollowed out a hole in the brush and I pull my truck right behind my stand.

1/4 to 1/2 a mile usually. However, I can't count the number of times I get back to the truck/ATV and there's a deer within 100-300 yards of it, sometimes even closer. We ranch, and have Invenergy windmills, so the deer are pretty used to vehicle traffic.
