I don't have much time for preseason scouting. I tend to hunt the same areas, hoping the deer are still there or I try to adapt and overcome if they aren't.
My uncle bought a new house since last year with 30 some acres connected to 100s of acres of public access state land so we've got lots of new possibilities. See my recent thread for pictures of one of his brutes.
Our season starts Oct 1st this year, which is 2 weeks earlier than usual, so Season 2 of my thread will begin that morning.
