I think evergreens are great! However in Missouri it seems like they dont really hang out in evergreens,(maybe cause theres nothing to eat?) we mostly see them in early morning or late in the evning, where i hunt it seems like they just use the evergreens as a road to come back from nighttime feeding or to get there.
Just look for signs, maybe if its hilly try to stay at the top or in the middle as opposed to the bottom.
Yes I would use a call
Early morning and evening

Yes In my part of missouri deer use the evergreens to bed and hide once the gun season opens. the thicker the better. the way to hunt them is the edge. look for enter and exits. Mr. Cool!

I've had success still hunting through cedars. Use the wind in your favor and keep low looking under the branches often with binoculars. Cedars filter your noise and by watching under the branches you can catch them before they catch you.
