How should I approach my stand given I have to cross a giant field?

I have a great spot in Hopkinsville,ky. However getting to my stand is very tough. I have to walk across a giant field every time I go. I hate having to cross every time, but the spot is that good. Would you recommend having a buddy drive me across in a truck instead of exposing myself for 10 minutes of walking across?


Based on what I know about your setup I would prefer being dropped off in a vehicle rather leaving a human scent trail!  In addition, it may be best to hunt this stand during the afternoon. If deer are using the field it will be extremely difficult to cross the field without alerting deer during the morning, even before daylight.

I go to great means to not alert deer on my way to, while hunting, and while exiting a stand.
