One stand over looks a tall grass field and has 5-7 scrapes around the edges and several runs along the way as well. The other stand sits back in the woods over looking a swamp with a bunch of thick brush, but yet again multiple scrapes and rubs in the area. I know the deer will be a bit hesitant once the shooting starts but they usually aren't too bad until the shooting from our property starts. Thanks for any input in advance
Well, I'm a little late with advice(?), but I think I would have chosen the stand with the best view (fields) for opening morning, then reverted back to the woods, maybe day #2, if there had been a lot of commotion around. I hope you were successful with whichever stand you selected!

For the afternoon hunt, I'd definitely go with the stand in the woods.

GOOD LUCK!!
