If possoble get in there and do some scouting.There should be gametrails going to and from the fields.Also look for any oak trees which could yeild acorns during hunting season.Look for rub lines on the sides of the trees.Deer usually like to rub on smaller trees with soft wood.Don't know if you have them in your area but holly trees are great places to find scrapes under lowhanging limbs.Know the prevailing wind and use it to your advantage.Either set up a few stands or get a pop-up or climbing stand to carry in with you.You will know the right spot when you find it.Carry a compass and know how to read it.Realize that hunting is like anything else ,the more you do it the better you will get.Sneak in and sneak out.I have taken plenty of deer sneaking in and out of the stand area.
Good Luck,
Rock
