Default Stand location?

This is a view of one of the properties I have permission to hunt. I need a little help with stand location.
Red= property I hunt
White=Private Property (where the deer bed)
Black= Dirt path
Blue= Water
Green= Heavily used trails

If i were to hunt that area i would probably hunt more by the bedding area, on the trail across the bedding area or on the edge of the bedding area.I dont think that a big deer will be out early and travel all the way to that river in daylight.try and scout from a long distance away and see where exactly the majority of the deer are coiming out or wherethe biggest is. I would get stands hung asap and when u hunt, make sure u play the wind!!!! good luck

I would place a stand on the point sticking out into the beans depending on if there are any good trails and the distance from the trees to the beans.

I will come up to Iowa and evaluate your stand choices personally with my bow! I think it depends on what you are after, big bucks-closer to bedding area possibly(probably nocturnal), except during the rut more deer seen from stand- northeast trail either near field or water(probably field)

well you could use many more stands if you could access them by that water source with a boat. Is it a creek or river??
