p.s.e. man, deer in big woods eat maple leaves when they fall to the ground. They also eat browse(woody stems of trees and shrubs). Look for areas where there is growth that deer can reach. They usually eat from ground level up to 4 or 5 feet. I've seen deer stand on their hind legs to eat sumac leaves. Also, I'd look for areas with good cover. Some ridges can be real hotspots. Scout some areas before spring greenup. You'll be able to see last year's buck sign. Also, block off deer trails that are more than shooting distance from your stand. That way you will funnel the deer closer to you. In swamps, I'd look for some high ground where deer can bed, or ridges where deer may travel.
