As spring starts to turn to summer, you’ll see plenty of stories designed to help you prepare for the fall hunting season. But it’s also important to know what not to do.
Realtree’s “Brow Tines and Backstrap” blog has a helpful list of seven big mistakes that hunters should avoid as they make their preparations. Among them:
- Hanging a deer stand too close to the start of the season could ruin that site for months to come, since the noise of that activity could scare deer away.
- Getting overconfident about your plan is not a good idea. Instead, plan for the unexpected, and remember that deer’s movements and patterns can change at any time.
- Regulations can change from one year to the next, so it would be a mistake to be complacent and assume that the regulations in your area are automatically the same as last year.
