get a topo map of the property that your gonna hunt if you can get aerial photos too.If your really new to hunting go to mytopo.com tell them the property and they will make you a topo map and suggest spots to put stands and point out features such as funnels ,saddles etc.Other than that latch onto an older guy at camp volunteer to help out with the work and they will start talking,sometimes they dont shut up
just kidding.nothing beats getting your boots on the ground and walking the property looking for deer sign and terrain features.good luck.i think half the fun of hunting is scouting out spots and hiking the area.i like to explore.Have fun
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
