Look for open patches of dirt in the area and look for signs of cloven hooves.. There scat will look much like rabbit scat except in larger pellets. In late summer you should find small trees with the bark all roughed up from where they have rubbed the velvet off their antlers. That horns comment was funny lol.

Definitely approach from down wind and on damp days if possible so the sounds will be softened and covered by drips and drops to help drowned out your sounds. The deer here have excellent hearing.
The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it.
