Do you think that getting busted by a deer (blows)while turkey hunting hurts your chances at a bird . . . .

It absolutely "hurts your chances" at a bird.

Here's why I say YES --- it hurts your chances.

First, I've never been able to determine that a snorting deer helped my chances, and I have many times had a spooked deer cause turkey to stop approaching and/or turn and walk away.

Now, a feeding deer will make turkeys feel more comfortable, and they will both feed in close proximity. But if either spooks, the other other goes on higher alert, often just walking away from the area.

Of course, if there is no turkey within 200 yards, may not matter. But there are often turkeys nearer that you don't know about. Spooking a deer is a negative, and I hate it when deer come around while I'm turkey hunting. There is a difference between a deer snorting and a deer spooking. If the deer only snorts, then goes back to feeding or continuing whatever its behavior before the snort, not likely to hurt your chances. But if that deer snorts, then runs, snorts again, then runs away --- most turkeys that witness that aren't coming your direction.

Definitely depends on the situation. If a turkey is close enough to me and to the deer it could cause him to fold his wings and run. It only takes one scare to turn a hot mouthed gobbler into a road runner.
