We hope all of you had a great deer season. It was a great deer season for us and we are pumped about getting ready for a great upcoming season deer hunting. Now is the time to start preparing for next deer season.
Prepare Early For Successful Deer Season
There are so many things that you can do to get ready for those big bucks this year.
We are planning on doing a controlled burn on our property this Thursday. The conditions are supposed to be just right for our burn and it will help our wildlife habitat tremendously. Always check your local laws and regulations before burning. I plan on doing a post next week on controlled burns and should have some great pictures and information on control burning for you.
Now is a great time to start doing some post season scouting, and I plan on doing a little while we are burning on Thursday. With the leaves off the trees and most of the vegetation gone you can really spot rubs and trails well this time of year.
You can still even spot old scrapes too. And you don’t have to worry about spooking the big bucks either. You can also search for that bedding area where you think those big bucks were hiding during the season. It’s never to early to start getting ready for next year, and the sooner you start your odds at a big boy will increase. And before to long the bucks will be shedding their antlers and why not scout while doing some shed hunting. It’s fun to be in the great outdoors shed hunting and scouting, and getting a little exercise too. I’m still sticking to my New Years resolution of getting in tip top shape and walking around out in the deer woods is great exorcise. And who knows you might just find that big boys bedding area or a big shed.
