That's EASY.... take a doe (young one) to put meat in the freezer. Then you hunt somewhere else until the rut starts. The doe will be back to "business as usual" after a couple of days. Once the rut starts, the doe will lure the bucks right into their feeding area where you will already have a stand set up.

i'd pile up a mature doe because they are the ones that will bust you later on and keep that big one from coming out

Either harvest a doe or take a predator call to scare the hell out of them.

Im with kill a mature doe, then let the spot cool off a few days and then rehunt it. This happened to me and I arrowed the doe, the deer were still there a few days later. I had the thought that they would all clear out of there, but I was completely wrong. The very first day that I went back in, I think it was about 3 days, there were deer playing grab ass under my stand.

have someone drive in and scare the deer off without alerting them to your presence, if that is not an option, bust the doe that you think might have noticed you. Having a buddy drive into the field is how we used to do it to hunt peanuts early season in Georgia, trucks and tractors are always running them off, so they will be back. If you do bust one make sure none of the others saw where the disturbance came from.
