To the left of your second "x" from the top there are 4 little humps in that 800' elevation line. Those look interesting to me. Where I hunt deer definitely seek those subtle changes that make the climb less vertical. I'm not sure what I'd call them, I guess little washouts? I could see deer crossing that ridge there because it looks like the point drops off rather steeply, so moving north to south I can't imagine they walk to the point of every ridge.

Looks like you did some scouting and took the time to familiarize yourself with this area .
Yea I have been in there twice so far have 4 cameras up. Just looking for advice from more experienced hunters

There's good spots on the other side of the creak.just figured the prevailing wind was wrong or the axess maybe. Or possibly you just didn't have time yet to scout it.also we don't know the timber or it's edges.maybe post a satellite photo next to it.for fun

There's a little bench/ depression North East of your 2nd pin from the top that peaks my interest. Yes it's a long run of ridge finger but something about thermals and wind being in favor of a bedded buck combined with that depression being on a good view point tells me a buck would bed/hang there. I'd give it a look and report back. If you can't hunt that side I would at least look into sign coming from there and try to capitalize on it.
