The pond is bordering the road, too close. The stand closer to the deer trail, hard to put in exact location. Is 30 yards from field, 20 from the deer trail. And a group of bachelor 6s, 3 of them come from bedding to field EVERY single day at around 3:50. And a 4pt yearling comes out of the field on my right and does a complete circle around me on the trail and enters the field again from my left at about 5:30

ok then if the pond is too close to the road perhaps setting a blind up 20 to 30 yards away from the pond so that you are between the water and a bedding area? also when it comes to a bedding area...... do the deer use this year round or is this a area that they rest from time to time during the morning or late afternoon? if at all possible see where the deer enter the field/bedding area from mabey you could hang your stand on the opposit side?

This is my first year hunting the property all i know is they use it daily everyday. What goes on is a daily routine every day by all the deer. I have yet to see the big boy. only one trail cam pic of him hes not big boy but the biggest 1 there. THe pic, he was facing the woods toward the pond stream area he was in between the bottom stand and the bedding area

ok that cleared up a few things. ok if it is your first year hunting this property then you will probably spend more time second guessing yourself than anything else. the locations you have pointed out look good and if your lucky like all the rest of us hunters they will pay off for you. in the meantime do some scouting see where those deer travel when going from point a to point b you never know you might just fin a better place to hang your stand that offers you more options( shooting lanes) then your previous stand sites. best of luck to ya.

      Wondering if anyone has an extra DMP tag for 4W. 
      Long shot I know and would be happy to get a 1C to exchange. Or trade my turkey tag. Wasn't sure where I would be hunting and never got a deer yet.
