I am by no means an expert, but I'll give you two opinions.
#1. Mine. First off, enjoy being out - not too many places nicer to spend some time than the fall woods. I am not sure what kind of space/ property you have to hunt. If at all possible, I would recommend hanging two stands with the key purpose to have a good set up for any of the 4 main wind directions NSEW (each stand covering two).
From there, try to set up within view (but not on top of) a likely food source. It is best to set up between bedding and feeding areas, but for me figuring out bedding without a lot of advance scouting is difficult. Make sure you can sneak in and out of each location without disrupting places deer are likely to be coming from. Always pay attention to the wind!
For the first 2-3 days, my approach would be to be patient and completely passive. If I pick up on obvious deer movement out of my shooting range, I'd move a stand within range. If after 3 days (assuming good weather) I'm not seeing much, I'll start to get aggressive. I would go on stand and do some rattling/grunting/hang some scent, etc. if there is still no love, my last two days would be spent slow stalking through the timber, keeping a close eye and ear out for deer, maybe grunting occasionally. A lot of stand hunters are surprised how effective this technique can be. Stay slow, quiet, and patient.
#2. Use the LRH community. Go to the deer hunting forum and put up a detailed post: where you are hunting, how much land you have to roam, what your goals are (trophy, meat, something in between). Let 'me know you are new to the sport but already hooked and wanting to learn more. Give it a semi-provocative title like "HELP me fill my tag!!" and I'll bet you get some opinions.
Good luck in the deer woods! No better way to waste a day (or months) in my opinion!!
