Inside any woodlot there are draws, ridge points, creek crossings, etc., that funnel deer within range. Hang a stand downwind of such an "inner terrain."
As they carve roads and clear home sites, developers create a maze of edge cover that often sprawls across 10 or 20 lots. Deer love to browse these fringes, so they're great stand sites if you have permission to hunt them.
Scout for a well-trampled doe trail that cuts all the way through your block of woods from adjoining properties. When the rut pops, a lot of rank bucks will prowl that trail in search of does.
