My current blind and feeder setup isn’t working too great due to mostly SW winds. I’m curious how you would approach this setup. Where would you setup your blind and feeders. The blue lines are the typical travel corridors the deer and hogs take. The yellow dots show current feeder locations and the small black outline/box is my blind. The only way to approach my blind and get to the feeders is from the south.

I’m pretty constrained to this area, so moving to another section of the property won’t work.

How many feeders?
Longest shot?
I would set blind just south of bottom blue line close to the woods west.
Set feeder about where old blind was or a little closer to the east. By the two groups of bunch of trees

Are yall not seeing those tree lines running east to west, in rows, stacked north to south?

Only thing I can see to do is tuck the blind due west into the trees, and walk north to it on the road. Then turn due east through the trees to get to it. North or south wind is not a cross wind.

I failed to mention that the tree lines running east to west have been grubbed.

actually when the cold fronts move from north, you're good.
