Default Hunting in the snow

Need some advice for hunting in the snow. I live in michigan and we got some snow over the weekend and I plan on going out again on friday after classes let out. The problem is I have never hunted in the snow since this is my first year hunting. The property I hunt is about 45 acres. All the way around it, it is surrounded by about 50-65 yards of woods and in the middle is a big field about 30 acres or so that is full of tall grasses and quite a few spruce and pine trees. On the west side of the property there is a small stream. Problem is I have only hunted this property once before so I don't know where to sit or how to even hunt deer after gun season and with snow on the ground. Any advice would help out immensly. Also there are about 4-5 different stands placed throughout the property so I can pretty much hunt anywhere, just not sure where.

Not really sure to be honest. All the fields around have been plowed and tilled up already, so I would assume the grass and the spruce and pine in the field. Everything else is buried under about 2-3 inches of snow at the moment. I haven't been out there since last friday since its 40 miles away.

Not sure where to go to get an aerial map, google earth doesn't show it in detail so I have no idea how to get one. Any suggestions?

ya, the field is the one with all the green dots in it, I can't figure out how to draw on the dang thing to show the stream and the property line.
