You need to be 60 yards on the normally down wind side, I have found this out the hard way.

cheers Thanks....
Theirs scrapes literally 360 around, just the fresh one tis close for shot, got ladder stand for one side, the ground , natural for other side , play wind...
edit might have ta rethink stand.. put it up, & later noticed scrapes... was going off first scrape seen, crossbow,
Figured have place sit for wind...
up you make valid point...
The fresh scrape was after set stand,after sitting yesterday, looked for movement before getting down, eased towards the drip off ta left, it slew area, place been sitting part way down hill, watching trail, seen several deer bucks coming outa slew...
That's whin noticed the other scrapes... Bro had a old time wood stand were I put mine, taken several deer
