Default Need a tactic for this area

So there is some amazing ground that I hunt that holds a great number of deer. It is not uncommon to see over 10 deer per hunt on this particular ground. It is essentially a strip of cover that sits in the middle of a cow pasture. The "wooded" area is made up of rows upon rows of small trees, with Russian Olives spotting the areas between the trees.

There are absolutely zero trees that are big enough to put a stand in, and a ground blind would stick out like a sore thumb. I usually sit in a seat up against one of the Russian Olive trees, but it is near impossible to draw a bow without being seen.

Any ideas on how I can conceal myself to get a shot here?

FYI, here is what a Russian Olive looks like in the fall. Offers some cover, but not a whole lot.

*Edit* The pic is not from the hunting area. It is just one I got from Google images to give you all an idea what I'm working with.
