I will be hunting in N. Central WY this fall for the first time. From what I have seen from some pictures that came from this area, the terrain is what I would call, 'flat-to-rolling with some canyons and draws thrown in". I don't know if that's a good description or not, but those of you who have hunted out west may be able to picture that. Here's a picture that might help:

My question revolves around the best strategy for hunting this type of terrain. My equipment will include a very nice spotting scope - thanks to BGH and Vanguard and I have a new pair of 10x42 binoculars coming soon. I will be carrying a .308 with 150 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips.
Are there specific areas (kinds of terrain, sides of hills, etc) that are best to spot for mule deer in the morning, mid-day and evening?
Is finding a source of water important enough to hike several miles to?
Any other important advice that I should know about?
Any and all tips will be appreciated.
