A place i hunt has lots of pressure on it and i have found really good sign ( like a scrape as big as the hood of a truck and 20 to 30 rubs around it) on it away from where most of the people hunt. I need help with a strategy to hunt what i know is a monster buck. I'm afraid this is all night time activity. Could someone please give me some feed back on how i should try to hunt this deer. Thanks!!

Try to find his bed and set up on trails leading to and from. Get in there an hour before daylight and stay until it's pitch black.

Simple for a high pressured area...hunt where others are not.

Yup! If its really pressured, hunt where others aren't. Even if that means in the wide open hardwoods. All other hunters will be where the sign is and around thickets. Most of that sign is done at night, so let everyone else hunt there. You need to hunt where he will be in during daylight. But if there is some thick stuff where no one else is (even if there is no sign), that's where I would be

Forget the trails leading to and from the bedding area, Get right in the middle of the bedding area, sit all day. and as others said stay away from the others. I like to get in early before everyone else pushes the woods. get set up and wait for them to come in and push the woods to you. go in from a different direction then the others. If you can access the other side of the hill go in from there. Play it smart and the others will do the work for you

What has worked for me in the past is to hunt during the week.

Where and when let the other guys be your drivers. Make sure you are on the stand when they are leaving in the a.m. and coming back in the P.M.
