Shouldn't take more than 15-25 minutes. First rule, never run, even when you crouch you are faster than a deer that doesn't know you are out there. Camping and luring with the deer caller is a very effective method, more than the tracking/stalking one although I find that one more "ethnical" since the deer caller is sort of cheating since the hunter is basically faking to be a deer.
The GPS/animal tracker is very powerful, it shows you where a deer call came from, you can save "trails" into it by left click and it will provide you with the general direction where the deer was heading to and once you enter three trails it precises these "clues" even more and from then on its all about getting the deer into the sights and kill it.
If you don't have much time to stalk/follow a deer, and you just heard a deer call, you can see the location of it on your GPS, simply turn into that direction and do one long deer call and the deer will head towards you as long as the wind direction isn't heading towards the deer as well (can't be checked with a default/free account). You can ignore wind direction if you camp on a high stand, the deer can't smell you up there.
