Small tracts like that are hard to hunt but not impossible. One thing for sure they will not be there all the time and you will have to try to pattern when they are using it. If you can get in with busting them out you will have a chance.

If you over hunt the tract they get real hard to find. I say pick a trail, find a tree, get in early and stay late.

where are you located? I'd put a stand in anyways, the deer won't stay away from that area totally. Or just find a good spot to sit and see them when they start to move and use the wind to your advantage.

Now may be the best time for a ladder stand or climber, its the element of surprise .
