need more info here to be helpful to you...

what kinds of trees make up the wooded areas? what crops are in the fields? is the ground worked or is there still corn/bean stubble available for food? is there water nearby? what kinds of elevation are you dealing with: is there high ground/low ground?

can you identify any obvious deer trails/bedding areas/etc...?

most importantly, where have you seen deer on the property?

Where are your access points. Consider whether you can you get to your stand locations without scaring out all the deer. I like to have multiple sets for differing winds. But with the limited info we have I am going to fall back on an old rule of thumb I was taught and say place your stands on inside corners. I've placed a orange dot on two of them that I can see.
