It don't matter at all where you hunted before, the north central is a brand new game. I hope for you the best, but little what you learned in the SW will hold true or do you any good in the NC.
Scouting each year is much more important. Where they were last , may not hold true this year.
Your sent will put them on high alert, even if its 7 hours old.
A 200 pound buck can hid in a thimble, and disappear in a second.
If you're not hunting with a gang, driving, learn how to track, and still hunt. If your going to post, arrive before first light, and don't leave until last.
Good luck, you will need it, but you just might end up killing the biggest buck of your life. There are deer in the big woods that only encounter humans during hunting season. A young deer may be the dumbest animal you've ever seen, a mature one you may never see.
Edit; one more thing, get yourself in the best physical shape possible.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
