I cannot count how many times this has happened to me.  I was actually still in the stand but well past shooting light and was waiting for a couple yearly fawn to move off to climb down when, what I thought was a big doe, came by but was too dark to tell.  I pulled the card the next afternoon to find that a nice 8'er was what crossed my path.  His photo was on there and 9 minutes later mine leaving the stand.

Sounds about right too for here. Have had that happen many times. That's an inherent problem with multiple stands although that can also work in your favor. Unfortunately it didn't this time. My thoughts are that one of these days, I and the deer will intersect at the same time at the same stand and hopefully put a good hit on him or her. Hang in there. There is a meeting with him coming up!

I have also pulled cards from a stand that I hunted 3 days straight and switched stands, because of wind, and pulled cards later on and found deer on the spot I just left... Go figure.. I have also had deer tracks in my footprints where I walked into my stand that morning.. Their crazy like that..

Keep after him.
