Prior to the '13 hunting season, we walked the property and identified what we felt would be a good stand location in the NE corner of the property. There is a topo feature that looked to be a natural travel corridor given the visible trails. A stand was placed and I cleared shooting lanes. This proved to be a great idea and I shot my '13 buck out of this stand. Even with that success, I started to pick-up a pattern of deer travel that spilled over into '14. This pattern presented a huge obstacle that required I do something and make a change.
Time is sure flying by with the year already half over and we are less than 90 days until the start of the Indiana Deer Season (refer below to the countdown clock in the footer of each page). Hunting season will be here soon and the pressure begins to mount for completing all of the pre-season tasks. I thought I would take a moment and outline what has been accomplished and what I have remaining before the leaves turn and the temperature drops.
