This is the time of year that most hunters put aside their bow hunting gear and pursue other activities. For myself and many others it is just the perfect time to regroup and prepare for the upcoming fall season.
Personally, I have found most of the sheds I have been looking for or the grass is tall enough that I have given up. I believe the planning you do this time of year can play a big part in your success in future seasons
Now is a great time to improve tree stand placement and shooting lanes. It is also time to improve the safety of your stands for yourself and some of the less experienced hunters that might accompany you in the fall.
This is the time of year to soil test food plots and lime them if needed. And if you are using any Roundup ready food plots it is time to get them sprayed.
There are countless things you can do now to improve your fall success.
Enjoy your summer, but don't forget to prepare for fall.
