    Use surveyor flags to mark off various distances in your food plot.
    You won't have to range a deer before you shoot.
    I used to step off various ranges and use sticks, rocks or whatever I could lay my hands on to mark the range.
    Whatever tree stand you feel comfortable in or even a roomy pop-up for concealment.
    The rest is just sit and wait.
    Whatever broadhead you select, use a field tip of the same weight for practice ... and practice often!
    IF you can afford that many arrows, I'd have a practice set and a hunting set.
    Good luck.
    Let us know how you do.

      Make sure you are on the downwind side of the plot. Good hunting.

          I've had very little success still hunting for deer, especially if you are talking whitetails. They are just to keen with their senses and will always spot or hear you first. You don't need to set up a ground blind in advance, just find a good bush to stand behind where you think they will pass through. Then draw when you are crouched and stand up slowly. Or only draw when their heads are down or looking away.

            I have used natural cover (weeds) along a fence line over a wheat field combined with a decoy for my first archery whitetail kill. Picking a spot based on wind is crucial. With this set-up I was sitting looking through the weed. When the buck came to the decoy (focused on the decoy) I went to a double-kneeling position (slowly) and shot him at about 20 yards. Sounded like I smacked him as hard as I could with a 2x6 when the broad-head hit
