First, take young bucks out of the equation, because there's no telling where these social outcasts will end up. Most of us, of course, are more interested in the older ones anyway, and they seek out the best habitat. Dominant males get the choicest spots, which provide all the requirements for easy living: food, water, and cover. But being both lazy and cautious, these deer prefer to move as little as possible. So find areas where all three basics are in proximity.
