Vacations? no,,, but I do have a thought that always runs through my mind after an uneventful hunt... I always say to myself, they must be having a deer meeting somewhere!
Odds are on a clear day and warm weather, the deer aren't going to move. Watch the weather real close for a front coming in where the temp will drop 10+ degrees. Or hunt RIGHT before a rain storm or RIGHT after a rain storm. I've seen deer come out after a rain storm like little kids.
ALSO- I started doing something last year that I think has helped me tremendously with my hunts. Even on days that I don't "get" anything, and maybe I see deer, but they are too young, or wrong sex, or too far away, I go home and write that down. I've made a rough drawing of the property I hunt and I pattern these movements by the deer. I watch where they are going during my hunt. B/c if one deer is using a trail, there's going to be more using that same trail. This helps find where their bedding areas are, and where their daytime areas are.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
