Well someone didn't read the terms and conditions.
Okay here we go...
If you encounter a map like oregon make sure you always start on top of a hill. Work your way down slowly and follow the foot of the hill towards the foot of a different hill. When you are down a hill following and planning your path, try something completely random for a change with caution. Once you found a good spot leave a scent trail on that area and move on. When you reached a point that you think is a bit empty, slowly return along the feet of hills to your scent spots.
1. Always work your way down hills slowly, try to run sideways often to possibly spot unseen deer behind trees.
2. Do something random once in a while but not too often, such as going through an open field.
3. Deer like to drink so make sure you run along the river downhill, poissibly leaving a trail of scent.
4. Also never forget not to take too much time moving around or you will get bored. (DON'T GO TOO FAST)
All of these are basics and it should be easy for you to at least find some deer now. Good luck.
