I have been hunting public land close to where I live for the last couple years, but I’ve never taken it seriously. I’m wanting to get more into the woods and find where the big deer live. The area I am hunting is the black hills of SD which is heavily wooded and sometimes rocky hills covered with mostly pine and spruce trees. I’ve seen some really nice deer taken in this area but I’ve only seen mediocre deer while hunting. This is a very large area that covers over 1million acres, so It’s pretty hard to know where to start. I bought a couple game cams last year but never set them out. What would you look for in an area to place a game cam?
