I am bow hunting out of a pop up ground blind
I have a link that is a map from goggle that has three different blind locations

Place marker 6 is blind location 1 that is set of off a field.
The field is grass and weeds about waist high. There is a small pond in the
Middle just off in the woods to the west
Another off to the north east.
And a larger pond to the southeast
I seen a nice doe here and a lot of tracks

Place marker 8 is blind location 2
It is set north of a clearing that is about 15 yards wide by about 100 yards.
To the north and west there is a small creek to the east there are semi dense
Woods that turn into soybean fields that are not public
Here I have seen a lot of tracks

Place marker 10 is blind location 3. It is set off of a small corn food plot
To the northwest there are dense woods to the south east there is a close large pond
Here I saw a lot of tracks and last winter around dec. I saw a few does

Your map link doesn't work. But........

First off you MUST play by the winds - what's prevailing.

Make your choice with a back up that will be OK if the wind is wrong for the first choice.

Heck depending onwind and deer movement you may need to utilize all 3 choices at some point or another.

Your link does not work. I just live about 15 min from Sullivan and I hunt the Greene Sullivan state forest and have some success in the archery season. Minnehaha is kind of the same type of ground and cover so about anywhere you sit you will see deer ion the early archery season.
