3. Buck Stop
A perfect stand is worthless if you miss the shot. So increase your odds of shooting at a standing, broadside buck by positioning your stand within easy range of a place where a deer will slow down or halt for a brief time. For example, a buck will stop for a quick bite at an isolated food source such as a fruit tree, pause to drink from a small pond or pool, and hesitate before jumping over a fence. Lacking these, consider digging a small pond, putting in a mineral lick (where legal), or making some mock scrapes.
