   I usually have all of my stands up way before the season starts. But, there have been a few times due to stand location during the season I have moved a stand and hunted it the same day. Took a deer out of it that day. Usually I would give it at least a few days though and try and do it either just before a rain or in the rain. This will eliminate your scent rather quickly.
