Default Couple of questions i have

first of all i went scouting today because i got up early even though i dont have school today.i went up between two mountains, what we know around here is "below the eagles nest" and on this old fourwheeler trail i seen a small deer track that went for like 30 yards and disappeared.
how do you know how old a deer track is?
the track i found was smaller then the palm of my hand and then i found another deer track that overlapped the palm of my hand.I put my hand down to size it up, i didnt touch the deer track just put my hand above it.
i put peanut butter on a tree thats a little off the small fourwheeler road and a couple of sliced up apples a little further up.i seen a good tree that would be good for a tree stand with open paths for a good shot.
would the deer use this trail again?
any help would be appreciated

You must have a small hand or you got some monsters running around up there.
