Welcome to the club!! My motto is "Leave no stone unturned". Like on the fly said, then you can play the wind a little bit too. I have 5 different stands around an 80 acre field, and they are all productive at one time or another, depending on the wind direction, how hard it is blowing on some days, raining or not, I've got pretty much every scenario covered. My point is defenitely try the new turf, stick a nice metal ladderstand up there before season and leave it all season. My 2 cents.
