The fall will be here before you know it, and for hunters, it isn’t too early to start preparing for a successful deer season.
Whether you are doublechecking your tree stands, scouting new areas to hunt, or learning more about wildlife patterns in your favorite hunting area, spending time making preparations this summer will be worth it.
The Realtree.com website has a good list of 20 recommended things for deer hunters to do in the off-season.
- Trim the shooting lanes in your favorite spots, since new growth can hinder your chances of getting the best shot when the right time comes.
- Map food and water sources and other key spots in your favorite hunting areas. Learning more about these landmarks can help you better plan your hunts this fall.
- If you use trail cameras, review last year’s footage to determine wildlife patterns, and make sure your cameras are set for the coming season.
- Whether you’ll be using a bow or a gun, practice your shooting. The practice can be fun, and it will pay off when the time comes.
