ONCE YOU'VE NAILED down the buck's pattern, place a stand near the hottest sign at each stop on the feeding circuit. Ideally, this will allow you to hunt several different winds. Moreover, by rotating stands, you'll avoid alerting a wary buck by sitting at any one of them too often. For each spot, Woodley likes to go in at midday with a buddy. "I hang the stand while he clears the limbs and brush," he says. "We get in and out quickly and try to leave as little scent as possible. A lot of our clients think these stands should be rested, but I believe in finding the sign, setting up, and hunting right away."
