    I've gotten my deer at least 1/2 the time. I hunt D14/16/19 down south, and C or B zones up north.
    I hope to move back to eastern Oregon or another state with healthy populations of deer, and open scenery, someday...
    but in the meantime my advice is this:
    Scout like hell, and do the opposite of what the other hunters do.
    The deer are So used to hunters that they know which trails we use, what time we start, when we break for lunch etc. so here's some tricks:
    1. Go up an impossible looking hill, so you can approach the good spots from a different direction. (The deer Really get thrown off by that one. They jump up and look at you like your crazy)
    2. Hunt the middle of the day.
    3. Backpack in, and hunt towards the road at sunrise (wind being in your face of course.) Any other hunters will be driving them towards you, but even if there aren't any, the deer don't expect it.
    4. Try a predator call. I've seen bucks And does jump out of chaparral that looked empty.
    5. Always hunt any rotten weather, winds included.
    6. If you don't see fresh sign, move over to another drainage.
    Good hunting
