Deer use landmarks to navigate through the woods just like we do. The easiest to find are the bucks that follow power line, roads, clear cuts or fields. The deer that follow more rough terrain are a bit more difficult, but they use old trails and visual landmarks just the same. Also, deer for the most part, move linearly, not circular. If you find one rub, think of where the food supply is. You can almost draw a straight line from that food supply to that rub and you will find a pattern of movement and more rubs. Setup your stand according to the wind direction. Lastly, deer move down slope in the morning, up slope in the evening. Find place were the deer can move without hitting the sunlight. Northern facing forest are best, western face in the morning, eastern face in the evening. Think stealth!
