Help looking for bedding locations

Can anyone give me advice on where to look for beds on my property? It is right around 507 acres. With dominant hunting season winds being out of the SSE, ESE as well as N & NW.
Any input is appreciated as I'm new to trying to locate beds and my boot scouting time is somewhat limited between projects and the fact that the property is 2 hours away.

I would walk all the steep ridges but would expect beds in the areas I marked with red dots.

Thanks a lot Dan, I'll be sure to check some of these spots on my next trip to the property and report back with what I find. A lot of these spots you marked I havent even considered hunting, I've been sticking to the flatter areas close to the fileds because until recently (after watching hill country bucks) I didn't understand how thermals worked. I notice that some of the dots are more towards the bottom of the elevation. Is this due to the steep change in topography?
