One such a small tract, begin by first looking at satelitte images of the area to see how the property fits with adjoining properties, paying close attention to identify travel funnels, grown up fence lines, or pinch points where deer are likely to travel. Then go check them out to confirm they offer good travel routes and pick a spot to put up a stand, keeping in mind the direction of predominant winds and direction of the rising and setting sun, neither of which you want to be looking into in the early morning or late evening.
As for the creek itself, deer are lazy and will cross creeks where the banks are easier to climb. In fact, you may find crossings that deer have been using for generations where hollows are easily visible in the creek banks.
Of course, others might say just throw up a feeder and let the deer come to you.
