best advice is get out there and go look over possible places
look at what is growing there, to figure out what there eating
follow trails back from possible food sources to find bedding area's and look for beds!
also while out, look for sign that other people have been hunting there, nothing sucks more than finding a good spot, going in to hunt it and finding someone else there already
so, look for signs others might be using same area to set up, look for markings on tree's from climbers and or like things

hunting is a skill and a never ending learning trade, the more time and effort you put into it, the more you will learn, and the better you will become at it
its NOT all about killing a deer or??
its about learning what deer do, eat , what keeps them alive and then , trying to outsmart them and getting in between where there at and going to be!
it takes time to get good at it, just have fun, and put time in, noting beats putting in time in the outdoors and paying attention to things while there.
you'll learn way more being out there than anything you will reading it!

I appreciate the help and I’m no rush to kill just trying to learn the basic. Hunted last year with beginners luck no scouting or establishing bedding areas or feed location managed to kill 2 deer but really wanting to dial in the deer location and travel pattern knowing they can change but seem like I need to walk and pay attention. Of course I see tracks but
How will I know if they’re bedded there or feeding there unless I see them in a bed? Which seems to be really tricky.

I have been hunting for over 25 years. Most of that has been on public land. My best success has been from being willing to get as far in as possible....as far away from other hunters as I could, and to find transitional spaces. Meaning the edges of fields...30+ yards inside the woods. The edges of where it changed from hardwood to softwood (pine). From normal forest to thicket, From swamp to whatever. identify those places and look for sign that animals are moving thru these areas then set up an ambush.

Good luck
