Roy, we camouflaged ourselves as 'nature loving' backpackers and not hunters and the deer were then visibly unconcerned about us! The ploy worked well!
No, after the shots, we headed back to camp (100 yds away) to unload virtually everything we could from our packs before heading down the hill to the deer. No reason to pack up any more than you have to and it was also getting hot! The white wicking layers are from summer mountaineering--keeps you warm but not so hot in the sun when it's hot and it was quite warm. I've never worn sunglasses and shorts up there, but they sure helped.

"And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?" Thomas Jefferson - Notes on the State of Virginia
