whitetail hunting on marshlands

i live on the lower eastern shore of maryland (deal island, a very small rural town that is bordered by the tangier sound, closest supermarket and fast food resturant is 30 min away) and much of the terrain here is marshland.. the deer pretty much have free roam around being as tho theres no housing developments or stores , etc to confine them to certain areas, theres always an area of marsh they could travel that would let them make thier way around the whole island this makes it very difficult to hunt these deer. there are some lighly pined areas and thickets made of water bushes throughout the marsh and i try to hunt these areas, there are lots of sign but when u go to hunt them alot of times i see nothing.... i know my scent isnt really an issue..the cpl deer i have killed i have been sitting on a bucket and shot them from about 30 yards away. has anyone here had any experience hunting on marshlands or know any tips that could help me see more deer due to my situation
