bow hunting question

Reply
I have a question on tree stand placement for bow hunting. I went do some scouting this morning and found awesome deer sign with deer droppings, acorns, rubs, ect. It's on an oak ridge surrounded by swamp and its bow hunting only. The problem is I'm only allowed to hunt to noon on this particular WMA. The sign I found is only about 100 yards from the canal bank where I park my boat. I'm thinking this would be a great afternoon spot, but my guess would be the deer are hitting the acorns on this ridge at night and then bedding in the swamp during the day. Should I just find a trail skirting the ridge and there or should I look deeper into the swamp to catch on in the morning heading back to bed? What's ya'll thoughts. Also, there are only a limited amount of decent trees to hang a stand.

I would start off hunting the oaks and only move deeper as the season progresses.
