The success of this strategy is predicated on your having previously glassed at least one or two shooters in a field or opening in the timber last month. If you didn't do your homework, however, it's not too late. Climb into an evening stand that affords you a view of a large feeding area (a crop field or open bench of white oak) and scout as you hunt. Or, leave your bow at home and move around glassing for big deer. After you've completed your recon, head into the field around lunchtime, put the wind in your face and follow a major deer trail out of a field that you spotted a good buck using-a good run will look like a cattle path. Don't walk on the trail. Parallel it on the downwind side. No matter how well the terrain and foliage hide your moves, do not penetrate more than 100 yards. If you push any deeper you're apt to spook deer, because many does and bucks bed near feeding areas in early fall.
