I have found a pretty good place to hunt. I have does and bucks both traveling two runways as they say.  I can't seem to get them in closer for a bow shot.  Any suggestions? As you know I'm new at this only hunting 2 years with a bow.  How do you descent your bow or do you?  If you spray it, it would leave white stuff all over it.  Thanks for your help!

If you want a doe hunt the heavy trails. Set up downwind of these trails 20-30 yds. If it's a buck your after look for parallel trails to the heavy ones. If you find a faint parallel trail you can bet it's a buck.  Always hunt downwind of where you think they will be.

One more thing. If your land has a lot of elevation change hunt high in the morning and low in the evening. Do you know why?

I would suggest finding a good pinch point and setting up there.

You may have to move your stand up or down the trail to get them closer for a shot. If you can find a pinch point or natural funnel they work great. Good luck!!

I either spray my bow or wipe it down w/ a scent eliminating towel. I also put an earth scent wafer in my case. that will take care of the smell. I do the same w/ each arrow

as for deer, these guys nailed it. find a pinch point

good luck

I use a scent eliminating wipe from Hunters Specialties to wipe down my bow and also wipe down my release. Along with arrows and arrow holder as well. I wipe everything down I can!
