If thats a treeline right west(guessing up is north)of the house and then the treeline that runs east and west below the yellow line looks good to me. 3 different hidden directions they could come from and a north wind would be perfect.

yes that is a stream on the west side (top is north). The road going through the property is heavy traffic its a state HWY. The "house" in the middle of the pic is actually a sportsman club so the range is north of that about 20 feet. So I try to stay away from the range but still put myself in good spots. There is another stream going under the road there. It kinda of goes NWto SE but its pretty curvy and hard to explain. All the green land there is CRP so they have about 200 acres to bed down in. I have jumped many deer pheasant hunting along the tree line so I thought I would put a stand up there. If anybody has any better recommendations PLEASE let me know.

I hate to say it, but it is about impossible to give an honest opinion just based on an aerial like this. Food sources, topo and other info would be needed. If the club is a high traffic area the better bucks may be nocturnal in the open. You might need to get back in the woods.
Put out a couple of cameras and see if you can tell what time of day the deer are moving on the trails, but don't go out there every day. Put them out and pick them back up in a week or two.

yeah I know I need to figure all that stuff out but honestly I haven't been able to scout the land that well yet because I just got permission to hunt it this week. I thought about maybe having to put a stand deep in the woods but the deer in the area are seen by the hundreds in the fields surrounds the trees so I thought I might be better off being on the border of the trees so I can shoot into or out of the trees.
