Go back in a feq weeks and with a weather change there can be a world of difference.  Main thing did you find old rubs and scrape lines? Then you know you are in the right area. 

Best was three rubs in a row on a deer path along a creek

People must understand that even in the best of places, getting a trophy deer is difficult. You still need good hunting conditions to help you out. Even in the best States, there isn't a P+Y deer behind every tree. 

I wasn’t looking for trophies shit just anything decent even to see from a far it was a ghost town out in those woods

Don't know about others, but the time between when bucks leave their summer patterns and the rut is the most frustrating few weeks there are in deer hunting when it comes to a buck.  Hang in there, it'll happen!

It takes awhile to learn new woods too, very hard to just go out and hunt with a 1/2 day scouting.  Last time I was there in SE Ohio, I spent 3 days with my buddy dark to dark scouting to find spots to hang and we still didn't score.  Saw a couple good bucks but couldn't connect.  Definitely head back in late October or early November before their gun season, and give yourself enough time for the DIY type hunt.  Don't underestimate the scouting side, I'd rather scout 3 days and hunt 3 GOOD days than scout 1/2-1 day and hunt 5 BAD days.  Normally when I DIY out there, I try to take at least 10 days (save up that vacation!!!) because it just takes time to figure it out.  Do as much scouting from home as you can with topos and aerials to narrow down your search and maximize your time! :up:

And when all else fails look for old wooden treestands ;) that's usually a sign of a good spot lol.
