Use the terrain and most importantly the wind to get into position for the shot. Keep in mind that not all animals will be in a location suitable for a high percentage stalk, if this is the case, give the deer some time to get into a better location that lends itself to a higher percentage stalk. You may even have to give him a day and work on him again the following day. Patience is a virtue !!!!! This is your basic SPOT & STALK method.

Tree stands can be very productive over well established game trails or at water holes.
These are just some basic methods............hope it helps
yea that helps a lot actually thank you. this will be my first time deer hunting and have been scouting for few months now trying to figure out where the deer are and being out and learning the terrain. so far so good i have found deer at every spot ive set up my trail cam. but i know their most likely not going to be in the same area come September but i am just trying to see how to hunt these spots. if a treestand is a wast of time no bother buying one but i do have my turkey blind with tie straps to tie in brush and branches. but if spot and stank is the easiest and most likely way to go then i will be trying that. i just wanted some incite on how to hunt this year so i can be as prepared as possible. im hunting d14 so if anyone reading this hunts the zone tips on how to aproach this area would be greatly appreciated.
