I just found a nice spot, buck sign everywhere. Problem is when I was hanging my stand I didn realize that there is a bicycle trail right below me. Do you think this will affect deer movement in this area?

Deer will probably use the bike trail. It could be frustrating for you if someone uses the trail while you are hunting. I'd try to set up out of sight of the trail. Best bet would be an escape route leading away from the trail.

Well you could look at it from a different point of view: if the sign is there they must be using it pretty good. With the bike trail there, the deer are use to seeing people so that may make them a tad less cautious as well. See a lot of success with these urban hunts with deer and people in close personal interactions.

Kill them where you legally can.
