Default bedding area

first time on this site. Just looking for some info or suggestions on hunting a bedding area. Ill try to describe it fairly quick. It is a area that is really small, right behind the owners house and bordered by a gun club on one side. the north side is corn and the west side is a hay field. To the south is a river, and a small woodlot next to a house. We always push this piece since it is small, maybe 2 acres at best guessing. We always kick deer out of it, and have taken, and seen some big boys in here. I am thinking of putting a ground blind in there and trying that. I also would like to hunt out of a stand just to be able to see better. The main area is grass and pine trees with a few bigger trees. The pines are not very big, but to see anything you need to get down on the ground and look for legs running. Right on the south side is a road, and the river and woodlot I described earlier is about 300 yards away or so. I know this is a great area, just not sure of how to hunt it for sure. I cant really get into the heart of it without spooking every deer in it. Any real suggestions will be helpful. Thanks
