On your final approach, look a lot and move only a little. In high country and foothills, bucks bed with a boulder or tree at their backs to shield them from stalking mountain lions. That cover can screen the last leg of your stalk. If the footing is noisy, though, sit and wait. Deer commonly get up at midday to nibble a bit and pick another bed, and you'll have your shot. Only then should you take the final steps, approaching your trophy. Then you can make all the noise you want.
