Concentrate on areas with thick brush or small thickets near houses, during the pre/post rut.

Trail cameras really help, the problem is worrying about getting them stolen. I just have cheap cameras for this reason. They help narrow down when and where a good place to set up might be

For starters You need to thin out a few Doe's so the numbers are more even....where there are Doe's the Bucks will show up eventually during the Rut.Hunt close to food sources in the colder months and have patients!
