    I like getting elevated more in a swampy area.

      Find a stretch of dryer ground, the deer will come through eventually.

        No matter where you hunt some things remain the same. Look for trails, a food source, areas where deer may be bedding down. Scout the area out and you will find the best place to be.

            Swamps can be very product hunting areas during periods of extreme cold weather.With so much rotting vegetation generating heat from the chemical changes caused by decompsition,swamplands can actually be a few degrees warmer than surronding areas,and deer know this and will head for swamps to escape bitter cold and high winds.

              Everyone before me has good input, I would add number 1: Wind currents are going to be highly variable; understory will create lots of swirls Watch your scent control. 2: Look for areas of flowing water near dry ground, the dear will find fresh water as opposed to standing water.3: Always try to get the high ground, and the greenest vegetation will be on southern exposures.
