I'd opt for the Antennas Direct DB8E. It has two sections that can be aimed independently. In your case, this allows you to make the antenna cover a wider range of the horizon.

I'd mount outdoors, and start with one panel facing about 115 (compass) and the other panel facing about 175.

Try this with no amplifier to start with. If you are inclined to try an amplifier, perform this test first, If the test indicates an amplifier would be helpful, I'd suggest the Channel Master CM-3410.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
