well its a learned skill, but modern technology makes it much easier,
deer need to feel fairly safe and have access to food, they don,t want to be constantly disturbed, but they learn very quickly that most hunters (preditors)
in the case of humans tend to be rather noisy and tend to travel on trails, they learn to move into cover and areas humans avoid like wet areas,
areas bordered by deep creeks and thick brush or bramble thickets, etc.

If you want to get to be effective at hunting youll need too spent a good deal of time out in the field observing,
but you need to know exactly where you are in relation to the areas features and access roads and you need to know how to get back to a specific location.
each area has its quirks and less productive areas, and you need to identify feed, bedding and travel corridors
use an ACCURATE GPS it is you best friend, get a book on what plants local deer prefer,
call and talk to game wardens and the local biologists,
buy a good topo map of the area, buy a decent cheap digital camera and if available fairly recently taken aerial photos of the area
go home and locate a lets say 3 mile square area and divide the area into a grid of lets say 1/8th mile sections,
and label each lets say with letters a-z vertically and 1-27 vertically
now get a note book and you GPS and any time you see anything of interest,
lets say deer, a tree stand, a scrape, road access a heavily used game trail, use the note book,
use that grid and GPS to pinpoint both its location and grid and the time of day and date!
over a few months or ideally, years you'll build a very accurate map detailing where deer were seen,
where and when they travel,and what they feed on,youll learn the best stand locations, bedding areas and game trails, and escape routes

What would you say is the best location to hunt for whitetail deer. I am in Minnesota and wondering if there is a good spot for them

In my experience, as a young hunter, I find that it helps to stay in the stand for five to ten minutes. I think that climbing out of a treestand while all pumped up after the shot can lead to injury, and I've also unfortunately made the mistake of leaving the stand directly after the shot and spooking the deer before it had died, pushing it beyond a big creek and up a hill where I couldn't find it by the end of the day. I think that it's a good rule of thumb for new hunters (like myself) to sit still and take a few deep breaths after the shot before climbing down.

Set-up a trail camera on the land you plan to hunt on. If you see plenty of deer it's game on!

Be patient

Play the wind

Relax and have fun

Dont let someone else determine what your trophy should be.
