First of all, congratulations on the great hunting spot, you should have a wonderful time.
Now, to scouting....can you get ariel photo`s of the area? They would be a huge help in seeing the layout of all the treelines, inside corners, things like that. Additionally, you can find webistes where you can order topo maps of the area, which are fantastic for reading the terrain. From your kitchen table, you can find funnels, saddles, drawls, and many other of the terraiin features that will naturally bring deer into a constricted area, making it much easier to determine stand locations.
Once you`ve found these terrain features, it really minimizes the traveling you do in unproductive areas of the timber, thereby reducing your time investment, AND, the amount of scent laid down in the woods.
You want to get started scouting immediately, and especially if you`ll scout without going over topo maps first, since then you will be, literally, walking every ince of the woods, looking blindly for heavily used runs, watching for saddles, drawls, etc. So you need to have all done done right away, so that by season opener, your scent won`t be lingering, and the deer will have had time to resume thier normal routines.
