Default NewB. Seeking advice

Hello everyone. My name is John and I am from NH. I am 24 years old and have been interested in bow hunting for some time. I have all the basics done. My safety course is complete, my license and all the proper gear in hand. I also have two tree stands that I have set up and have practiced from. I have scouted a few areas I would like to hunt, but I am not confident in my judgment of picking out the right spot. I need advice on what to look for. Signs, rubs, runs. I know what they are, but feel as if I am looking in all the wrong areas. Anyone with advice feel free. Thank you all.

welcome to the site,confidence comes with experience .so get outside and hunt..ya say ya know what the sign looks like well on slow days follow the rub lines and see where they go.the rut is geting ready to start so sign isnt a real big deal finding areas where does are is the ticket now.look for doe bedding areas and ood sources and sooner or later mr Big will come a calling.good luck
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
