I don't know if you can get a topo map. That would be helpful.

Really need a lot more information than just what an aerial can tell. Looks like maybe 75 acres of timber in 87 and maybe 60 acres of timber in 85. Are there any planted agriculture fields contiguous to the tracts, what is "cut down", how do you access the tracts, how thick is the ground cover, how many people hunting the area, main trail locations, do the drainage areas stay wet all the time, etc.

Not enough info RE: general area of what state, as far as prevailing wind, and what TIMBERCRUISER said.

I think you might be wasting your time. I used a real good magnifying glass and didn't see any deer on that map anywhere.

But if I had to guess one might come along for some reason or another I'd put a stand right in the middle of the woods above the number 85 where the woods funnel.

And the bottom right of 85 where it meets 76 (another funnel).

Earth Google is free & it can help you spot likely spots, but nothing is better than feet on the ground.

With the info provided about all I can offer that might be worth a look is the funnel area just above the number 85.

If you want me to look over the maps in detail I'm happy to give you my advice. Most of my hunting buddies think I'm a map geek. Visit me at www.strictlywhitetails.com and drop me an email.

With what I can see the funnel in 85 is the most obvious. If that's a field north of 87 I'd check that out, and if it's dry since I don't see any creeks or rivers I would definitely look for sign on the east side of 85 to see if they are heading for the pond.
If those "cutdowns" are sections of logged woods those are always great bedding areas after they grow up thick.
