Default Season fast approaching

Hello the Michigan firearm season starts in less than 24 hours now, and I'm trying to get opinions on where to sit in the morning. I have two stands that are going to see deer, what what kind of deer (bucks/does) is yet to be seen. 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 starts on our property. Thanks for any input in advance

Two possible approaches for me would be, take the field for first two hours then slip back to the swamp for the rest of the day and stay put there for the rest of the hunt. The smart bucks will be heading for the swamp asap so starting there might be the best thing anyway.
