Default putting a blind in a open field?

ive got some land im going to shotgun hunt thats basically farm land, its got a 5 yard wide strip of tall grass splitting the fields up for bedding and a pond for water. should i set my blind up next to the grass and shoot them comin into the field, or should i put it out in the field 100 yards or so away? i know where the deer are and how they move i just want to go about it the best way that i can. thanks guys

If I'm wrapping my mind around you location, that 5yd-wide grassy strip seems like a
path deer will use. I'd put my blind up away from that location personally.
Nothing like a couple round hay bales to hide in between.

ive read you can put it in a openfeild for a few days before the hunt and the deer will pay no or little attention to it

One of those mirror sided blinds might work.

I live So. of you and I would put that blind out now, stake it down for you know how our winds get and leave it. I am putting out my pop-ups this week and will have them in place for 2 weeks from now. I put out 4. 2 for a South wind and 2 for a North wind. I even put our lawn chairs in there ahead of time just to cut down on noise when we get there. We hunt private property. I try to put my pop-ups in a brush pile, downed tree top, honeysuckle patch(my favorite!!) or briar patch. Just something to break it up a bit. All of our corn is out (Thank God!!!!)

Are you meat hunting or bone hunting ...if your meat hunting you can set it up most anywhere down wind and kill a doe BUT the Big bucks will not likely come around if they see something forein or different in their area ...

Meat hunting, still trying to get my first deer. I haven't had luck with the bow so far, they stay just out of reach. With My shotgun my reach just extended 150 yards lol

Well in my opinion have it out there atleast a week ahead of time, most deer will grow accustomed to it by then.
