It’s no secret that when it comes to hunting, fortune favors those who plan ahead. And for recreational property owners looking to improve the quality of wildlife on their land, now is the time to take steps that can pay off in future hunting seasons.

The summer is a great time to get smarter about your land. Take soil samples to learn more about what will and won’t grow on the property. Set up trail cameras so you have a better understanding of the wildlife on your property, such as where deer like to bed down and find food and water. Also, scout the property, so every section will be familiar to you when it comes time for hunting season.

In addition to gaining knowledge about your property, this is also the perfect time to clear land for food plots, to plant food plots, and set up or repair your tree stands. As for water, there are fairly simple and affordable ways to use 50- to 100-gallon water tanks to create more water sources for the wildlife on your land. has a helpful blog post with tips like these on its website.
