I had that same problem on my land for 2 yrs i went up to hunt and nothing i would go up for the entire hunting season and I wouldnt see one deer for those 2 hunting seasons. Someone told me there maybe coyotes on the property that r scaring the deer away so I was given a coyote deterrent when i go hunting the day before i stand outside the cabin and use the deterrent for a while and i use it in the morning of the hunt and i scares the coyote away and I've gotten luck with using it and brought home deer so try one it may help u. good luck and good hunting.....i have property up in hunter mountain NY
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
