Since my last post i changed my entry point and came in behind the ridge and walked over...I found their bedding area or at least one of them. The acorns are white acorns and I have repositioned my stand so that I am between the bedding area and the field with good shooting lanes, 20 ft off the ground and I should not get winded. I am excited cause this weekend will be the first to hunt from the new spot. From the signs this should be an awesome hunt!!!!

good luck sounds like your in the right area like this will have a deer trail that should stand out.deer are lazy and creatures of habit .they will go the easiest route to get to where they want to go.set up along the travel route and you'll fill your tag for sure.go get em
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Huh. I guess I've got a few questions for you. You're playing the wind correctly based on thier bedding and main food source other than the acorns? How is your approach to and from your stand? Are you spooking deer on the way in wether it's with your scent or sound? As for some advice. on my am hunts I prefer to set up in the woods or swamp depending property I'm hunting. Closer to the bedding area but not close enough to spoke them and always watching my approach with my scent and sound. In the evenings I like to find where a staging area and buck trails cross running the edge of some sort of food plot. Depending on what the does are feeding on at the time, wether it be, apples, acorns, corn, or whatever. set up 20 or so yrds down wind somewhere just past the middle or at the end of where the they are entering and exciting these areas. You need to really watch your scent though. If you spook him, you'll never see him till sometime in june.
