Do you think that getting busted by a deer (blows)while turkey hunting hurts your chances at a bird and should you move if you do get busted?

Never have thought about it. I'm interested to hear what others think.

No, I do not think it hurts your chances. I don't think the turkeys will relate a deer's snorting as a warning of danger. It will get their attention, but if they don't see anything amiss, I would think they would normally not have much of a reaction. Just my opinion. Of course in each situation, there could be a different outcome.

Depends on how far away the turkey is.

I had a bird coming in one time, maybe 80-100 yds out. A deer wanders between us, gets my scent and starts snorting like crazy, and evidently ran right at the turkey. Never saw or heard it again that day.

Another time on Catoosa, I had worked a bird for over 3 hrs, and had stayed within 100 yds or so the whole time. It was a classic chess match, with multiple setup changes, even if it was just 20 yds.

Had him at about 80 yards (pretty thick, late season), when I heard footsteps coming from his direction. I just knew it was him, and was ready when a nice buck in velvet walked straight at me ! He veered off at about 30 yards, went another 10 yards to my left and laid down. He had the wind in his favor, and I just knew it was a matter of time before he busted me. After about 15-20 mins, he finally went back the way he came, and soon after the turkey gobbled to an airplane or something, and I knew I was back in business. Who knows, the gobbler may have sent the buck in to check things out \:D !

I have had it go both ways. I have had birds go completely silent and disappear. I have also had them gobble at the deer blowing, and march in to their death.

The worst is the spooked deer which runs right through the middle of the birds you are after.

No, just hope the deer doesn't blow past the turkey you are after
Ive had alot of deer blow at me and I just hang out for a little bit and most of the time the old bird will start up again after a little wait
