Nikki wrote an excellent article about late season hunting that offers very helpful advice for hunters of all experience levels. Nikki offers many smart, practical tips in this article Late Season Whitetail Tips & Tactics. Here are examples:

Binoculars can be one of the greatest tools for helping you locate bucks and watch their movement patterns without getting too close. Scouting and knowing the popular travel paths are great, but if you don’t know which path they are going to choose you may be wasting your time. Instead, opt to watch bucks from afar. Once you see which path he chooses, hustle to beat him to the punch.
