Default good stand site but need help

I feel I have found a great area to place a stand. I will try and describe it. Two major trails combine into one that go into a thicket. There are few problems this thicket is really close to neigbors woods probably 20 feet away. Second problem is there are not many good trees to set up in. There is only one and its between the two trails. Both being about 30 or 40 yard away. The wind normally comes from the NW well the wind would being blowing right on the one trail. I have no idea what to do?

Set up 2 seperate stands on each trail, don't really know any other way to solve the problem.

I love hunting the edge of these thickets! One thing that I have found is the bigger bucks don't use these main trails as much as the doe's and young bucks. The bigger boys usually have there own smaller hard to see path that runs parellel to the main path! If you get a chance to view this area with snow on the ground thats the best way to find the buck trails. Look for that lone set of tracks heading in or out of the thicket. Chances are thats your shooter. For now if you only have one good tree to set up in I would do it. It's ok that the wind is working against you on the one path because chances are theres a third or fourth trail the bucks are using that you don't even know about yet. See what happens that first day and adjust your position the next time if you need to and remember to look for movement running parellel to those paths anywhere from 5 to 20 yards out.....Good luck...Jim

how about a ground blind with natural brush, or making the deer move around into a better shooting position by cutting a tree over the trail?
