Try and get a satellite image of the area you are hunting and a topo map too. Use these two tools to help you find natural funnels. In my opinion that's where you should setup your camera. That way you can pattern the deer that are using that trail.
Or you could pour out a 50lb bag of corn and see who comes in.
The best advice I can give is to not hang the camera more than thigh or waist high. Also, if you want to get quality pics you should place something to stop the deer infront of you camera about 10 feet away. My buddy and I find apple that have fallen off of trees to work well. Or if you have a mineral lick or salt block of some kind these work well also.
Best of luck to you. Be sure to post any pics of good bucks!
