Default Stand Placement.....

Hi guys,

This is gonna be my first year deer hunting and in the last 8 months I have done A LOT of reading on whitetail hunting. But I think that advice from veteran hunters is better than any book. My grandfather owns 100 acres of property and I'll be hunting on it this season. I just picked up a ladder stand and went out to scout but I can find any footprints or droppings. I know there are deer there because my uncle says he sees them every time he goes to check on his garden there. There is a man made path going through the forest and I believe deer are using this route to get into the garden, where they are often seen browsing. My question is where should I start looking and what should I look for to find a good place to set up my stand . I will be hunting with a bow. Any help is greatly apprieciated.

I would walk the field edge around the garden area. That thick brush looks like a perfect place for the deer to hold up until they feel comfortable enough to hit the garden area. There has to be some trails there somewhere.

Keep looking for signs of deer trust me you'll find them. Find a trail that leads from the bedding area to their feeding area. Set up a little off of that trail, far enough away from the bedding area so you dont run the deer out of that area. Find a nice pine tree and WAIT! Stay in the stand fora while. Good luck.
