Deer hunting really steep terrain

I just started hunting in the george washington national forest in Va. I am not used to such steep terrain. You can either hunt deep valleys/creekbeds, mountaing tops (~3000 ft), or the sides of the mountains (very steep with few benches). Is there a typical place that deer would reside in such terrain. Do they travel on the sides of these steep mountains even though there are very few benches? I just don't know where to start.

...look for sign if there are deer there they have to leave sign , tracks , droppings scrapes , rubs etc if there are none then probably there are no deer there !
