Re: Hunting Pressure advice
My experience has been the once the season begins, the deer are moving and will break their normal patterns. I will generally give an area that has been searched/disturbed as you you describe time to cool off for a few days. I have had deer use such a trail afterwords. I have had years when myself and my buddy have shot bucks from the same stand within the season. As I mentioned I'm my prior post, the bucks can move over a fairly large area once the shooting starts, and given that the human scent has dissipated, will continue to travel the trail.
