Default Overhunting small acreage

I have a quick question for those of you that have small plots of land to hunt. I recently got permission to hunt a small 6 acre plot that backs up to a larger 15+ acre plot. The deer are using the small piece as a staging area. My question is, how do I not overhunt this piece. The woods are very thick and the landowner told me he saw a nice buck coming out of it about two months ago. I hunted it Friday morning and got busted by a hen. I want to go back but I don't want to mess it up before the rut starts. I figure that will probably be the best time to hunt it because it is full of acorns and I know the deer are feeding on them. He gave me permission to hang a lock on stand and I want to do that but I'm nervous to go back in. What do ya'll think?
