Default Sticking to the same spot

I'm a Fl Boy and have hunted everything from deer to wild hog in Fl. I'm currently in NC and succesfully harvested two bucks this past season (bow hunting), no problem there. I've hunted for the past three years(rifle) in Wv on some family property and my grandpa always has me go to the same permenant stand, his stand. He hasn't hunted in the past 5 years but always goes to hang out and have a good time. I like the stand because it has gotten me a harvest every year but it seems kinda cheap because the bucks are coming in for the does that are eating the corn. We've always gone around the property to see the scrapes and rubs and other relatives hunting spots. This past year we went out to a part of the property where no one has really hunted in the past 6 or 7 years. Main reason is that it takes about 45 minutes to get out there on a 4-wheeler, when all the other spots are within 10-20 minutes. We went out to that part of the property and I saw more scrapes and rubs on/under large trees than I had ever saw in my 23 year life.

This past season I shot a 5 point buck that was probably 7 or 8 years old we guessed from the molars and the battle scars on his head.

I don't mind sitting in a permenant house like stand shooting 6 pointers but I want to get out and work for it. I REALLY want to set up out on the other side of the propertuy next season, should I do it or should I stick with the same stand?
