Well I'm the exception...again.
I don't scout. I know most of the small parcels i hunt like my own back yard and I tend to be very mobile while I am hunting. This seems to keep me pretty well clued in on what the birds are doing.
If I pick up a new place, I will look over aerial photos pretty hard and take a quick "speed scout" a day or so befeore I hunt it.
"Speed scouting" is a term coined by Dan Schmidt of D&DH. I will identify several promising areas by map/photo recon. Then I will go in, taveling light and fast to look them over and pick out set-ups. I don't worry about spooking birds, I just try to get in and take a quick look, then get out of there. I will then revise my plan on the fly as I hunt.
