Still hunting is another method, Old Hunter uses this method. Basically you walk through the woods very slowly stopping every step or two scanning the woods for deer. Usually you will just see bits and pieces of the deer as you scan the area. For myself, I need to see a LOT of sign in the area before I will still hunt it.
Tree stands can be very productive over well established game trails or at water holes.
These are just some basic methods............hope it helps
