Take a look at the Homepage of MS and scroll down through the articles that are offered. You'll find a piece by me titled, "Scoutings Perfect Ten". It will give you my idea of how to locate a likely area in which to ambush the wily whitetail.

Keep in mind, it entails many things, but WIND is the key. I refer, not only to the wind directions on a particular day, but also how terrain and tree growth cause it to swirl and change directions, totally unexpected from the compass point from which the wind blows.
