      This is going to sound sarcastic, but go where there is deer. You have a ton of time to preseason scout, and that will show you where there is deer. Since we don't know where you are at, ask some hunters in your area that you know for some help on where to set-up. Also, on the web there is many specific state hunting website. You can learn a lot about your local area through this.

        Take a walk around and check the sign. Talk to some guys down at the local sportsmens shop. Or even use the under utilized game warden or Fisheries and wildlife people. Uusally they will give you the lowdown on what's been seen where. Definitely read up on material to get a feel of where to look yourself. Food sources are an excellent place to start as well as places where deer are known to yard up.

          One thing that could help to get him excited about it is to take him out scouting with you. Go out and glass to see where the deer are coming in and leaving the field. Try and locate their trails, follow them back and see if you can locate their bedding area. If you can do that then you can set up aways off the trail(s) and the bedding area.
