As already mentioned, glassing reprod. I like finding a spot where you can see the ends of ridges out of view from anywhere else. Today (and most days) I found deer bedded in the brushy corners of clearcuts along the tree lines. My daughter killed her first buck, a nice 2pt bedded at the base of a big stump at 1:30pm. They love that soft rotten material.

I preferred the middle of a newer clear cut when I'm not paying attention method today.

Not a good situation for a deer hunter. The deer will feed and move at night. You might be lucky enough to catch then at dawn and dusk shooting hours

Thanks for all the replies.. glassed up a few does the last two mornings on the edges of clear cuts, but no bucks to be found for me. Itís 11:40am now and Iím slowly working through some reprod thatís fairly okay to navigate. Had one deer snort-wheeze at me, then bailed. Never saw that one. Gonna continue the still hunt and hope to find something bedded down in here. Thereís tons of trails and beds all over in here. An occasional rub on a Xmas tree here and there. Thanks again to all you  BT pros for the guidance! Itís greatly appreciated. !

I went up Wednesday and found a good reprod and glassed it for the last two hours of the day. Didn't see anything. When I packed up and was headed home I saw a nice 2pt buck standing along side the road.  >:(

My tactic is getting busted by does sneaking up to a cut to start glassing. It is *so dry* out there right now, everything is loud. That said, once you get into position, as someone else mentioned: the deer are quite loud too. I got busted off a heavy 3pt at 165 yd by the doe. He never even looked around, just followed her right out. Tried for 4 hours to locate, but they'd moved into an inaccessible basin (would've had to push through a quarter mile of steep cut debris).
