Like timber said both of those spots sound good. Especially if its rut time it sounds like both spots arn't bad. I would porbably pick spot 2 the first morning i hunted. Beat down trails are made usually by does and young bucks. If its rutting season you may even catch a buck chasing a doe thay used one of those trails or a buck going through those trails searching for a hot doe. You never know. The evening i might try spot 2. Down south the deer like to move to the clearcuts closer to dark. Maybe thats true for your neck of the woods too.
Another hunter may say the exact opposite because of the buck sign you have in spot 1. Its a very hard call. I think no matter what you choose your not going to be in a bad spot.
