In the beginning of the season, hunt your primary stand. Hunting the primary stand will train the deer to travel down wind of that spot to smell the hunter in the tree. As the season progresses and the mature deer start to move during daylight hours, go to your setback stand. By the end of the season, you should be hunting your second setback stand (your third stand back). This sounds like an easy concept, but it can get frustrating hunting a setback stand. Typically, the further down wind of the primary stand you hunt, the lower the deer sightings. This is especially true if the primary stand is located over a primary food source. However, Dougherty and his clients have reported that they see more mature deer out of the setback stands than the primary stands.
