Default Help with hunting spot choice....

I am planning on hunting tomorrow. I went scouting and found a nice scrape and 3 rubs. I drew a crappy paint version of the layout.

Points to remember:
Heavily Wooded
Hunting from Ground
At any point, I can only see/shoot 100 feet.

Where should I sit? How much space do I need to have inbetween me and the scrapes/rubs? 20g slug or .243? Thanks

Red is a scrape
Blue squares are rubs
Green Lines are good deer trails
black lines are my 4wheeler paths (only real clearing)
Then of course blue lines are creek beds (dry)

The only advice I can give with that is use the 243. Down wind from the scrapes would not hurt.

There's no better advice IMO
