your not to far from me. Hunt some trails, do some scouting and find where the deer are at. Hang a stand where you feel you have the best chance. Look for bedding area's now and hang one around there, sooner or later he'll show up. Look for Crab Apple tree's, deer eat em and it's not baiting. I got a stand over looking one. A buddy of mine has seen a few deer mozing on by to eat a few. Another thing you could do is watch the fields. Talk to the land owners and see about hanging a stand there. This way you can know where the deer come in and leave..
On a funny note on the cwd. A guy at work got busted this weekend for having a truck load of beats out. He just got a fine and that was it.. Wouldnt you think if this is such a big deal that they would have made him pick it up? Hummm I still think it's just a money maker for the dnr. After all...It's not in "free roaming deer."
