Should I hunt this location?

I had a friend the other day ask me if he should hunt in his buddy's hunting spot. Its private land and both hunters have permission. The friend had the kindness to ask his hunting buddy for the set up and I thought that was respectful. I also told my friend that out of respect he shouldn't even ask for that permission especially if the other hunter was going to hunt that same location that afternoon. I myself want a fresh set up when I go out to the stand. I don't want to be in area that has been ran all over by other hunters or ATVs. I believe that if you know that good bucks are in your area you need to stick to that area. You don't want to burn that stand up everyday but you should hunt that core area. Play the wind as they say. If he is around chances are you will get an opportunity at that certain buck. I believe hunting has ethics just as golf or any other sport and hunters should use hunting ethics because they (hunters)represent the hunting community and or sportsman. I hope that he has the respect to stay out of his fellow hunters area. The other hunter can't say a word to him for hunting in his area but I would like to be a fly on the wall when that friend of mine tells his hunting buddy that he killed the giant that he has been after the whole deer season. He will be happy for him and his successful hunt but at the same time he will be killed inside.
