Welcome and I agree with everything Buckfever has told you.
ssully, you also mentioned you haven't seen any deer yet, this is why it is so important to scout as much as possible,, a successful hunter can't stress enough how important scouting is. look for the deer sign, "IF" you're in a spot with fresh deer sign then all you need do is be patient but if there aren't any deer moving in an area you're wasting your time in that area, A SEASONED hunter has developed more skills over time and may have some luck drawing deer in with rattling horns, calls and scents but those skills take years of learning when to and when not to...
Deer can catch the slightest movement so it's important to learn when to move and when not to move and again that's pretty simple when they AREN'T looking is the best time to move ASK any hunter and they will all tell you the TALES of all the times they moved and got caught by the deer, "Deer see movement very well" You can shoot while sitting but a hunter has more control while standing...

so my advice to you is
first, make sure you're in a good hunting location (Fresh Sign)
Second, try to detect a Deer coming in early so you have time to rise and shoot
lastly, be patient....

Good Luck and when you get that Deer post us some pics please, we love pics.
