yes i agree the most important thing to keep in mind is scent........ i would go to your local sporting goods store or wherever it is that you go to get your hunting needs and buy just about everything they have for scent control... read the directions on the scents you buy believe it or not the they are there for a reason.
next is your location? where and what kind of terrain are you hunting? until i know i have no further input. send me a message with that info and ill help you out the best i can.

ok what i would do is walk the perimeter of the woods/field and look for deer sign.if there are corners that would be a good spot to start if you go with a buddy one can walk in the woods 50 yrds deep and the other walks the edge just outside the woods.walk together wear orange if you kick up a deer one of you should be able to get a shot off .the other option is to set up on the spots where you find the sign.I would bet 20$ that theres got to be a trail winding thru the woods to the corner of the field i would post 30-50 off that trail with a good shooting lane.bring warm cloths some thing to sit on and a thermos of something warm and food and sit there all day with your binnoculars scanning.you should see does moving at first light and 1 hr before sunset the bucks will follow the does.dont leave at lunch time .deer are hip to that and will get up and walk around from 12-2 then rest again.now you've got a plan go use it and post a pic of your deer.

look on the side of trees bout 3 ft up for rubbed off bark the fresher the better.(rubs).next look for circles of pawed dirt in an otherwise leave covered area get close and smell if it smells funky (scrape) the trifecta is a rub with a scrape with a low overhanging brach thats been nibbled on (licking branch)deer pellets, want to impress your friends when you find some pop a few raisenetts in your mouth chew them and look wistfull and say wow good deer these are fresh from a monster buck.never fails to get a laugh.and drum roll please the number 1 deer sign to look for is .......................A DEER :w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t:

Smoking is okay as long as you pay close attention to the wind, and always hunt into the wind. I'm a smoker, and I always smoke when I'm hunting, and never had to many problems getting a deer. That was my very first lesson from my grandfather.

He was a smoker too. The first time he took me hunting with him he was calling deer and they were replying and I couldn't understand as a child how come the deer couldn't smell the smoke. He said to me, do you hear them deer calling and I said yes, He then said where are they, and I pointed in front of us.

Then he said where is the smoke going, and I said behind us. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. It was one of the most valuable lessons that any hunter could ever learn.

Watch the wind my friend.
