Default Ridge Hunting question?

I had to move a stand right before the rut because tree it was in was about to fall down after a windy rainy two day storm. I moved it to a ridge side about 1/4 of the way down, but still 10ft above top of ridge. A majority of deer sightings have been at the bottom of ravine or side of the ridge and occasionally you will get deer moving on top of the ridge. my question is; What wind direction do I hunt it in? With wind coming over ravine (s or sw wind) hitting me and going over top of ridge or over top of ridge hitting me and out over ravine? This is in wooded ridge country of Maine. so about 60-100 yards away on either side is another ridge. If this is confusing sorry. I added a image to better explain. Im not an artist either lol.

Thanks to those who respond.
