I've been stuck hunting public land most of my life. I utilize aerial and topo maps and look to get in very deep because many hunters are basically lazy. Locate where a deer is likely to go ( the thickest stuff you can find) when pressed. Find where the best ambush point is and set up to catch him when he's trying to sneak away from other hunters. Get into your stand very, very early. Let the woods settle down before first light then let the other hunters drive him to you. Plan on staying all day. Hunters move around a lot when bored, hungry, or cold. This means they'll be jumping and pushing deer a good bit of the day. If I don't tag at dawn, I usually get another chance when every one else comes back into the woods in the afternoon and at dusk. I knocked down a pretty 8 point while everyone was leaving the woods to eat lunch at their vehicles.
