If you can't get a shot, be patient, Foulkrod says. You know where the deer is, and you want to keep it that way. So don't move in. "It'll drive you nuts, because you may see a good buck, but it's too thick to shoot. If you wait him out, though, he might get nervous enough to stand up or reposition. Otherwise, just come back the next day when he may be in just enough of a different spot that you can shoot him."
