One problem, however, is that since deer might come from three or four different directions, it's tough to predict the wind and the best trees from which to hunt. Also, I find that rather than moseying around in the bottoms of draws, deer like to move through cover on adjacent hillsides. They do this because they can see better from there and because rising thermals let them smell predators approaching from below. Look for side trails and position your morning stands accordingly. As deer move up from feeding areas, they'll use these trails to get to their bedding spots.
