I'm currently trying to locate a big woods buck this summer to hunt in the fall, and after only checking a single trail camera once, it hasn't happened yet. There's still a lot of time for it to happen, but today I wanted to briefly talk about what it really can mean to you when you locate a mature buck when hunting in a big woods setting.
Summer is about many things, and among those is preparation for deer season. Before you know it, you'll be taking steps up a tree, ready with a bow in hand. It may seem like a little ways away right now, but summer usually tends to fly by, and all of a sudden it's deer season. With that said, today I wanted to go over why summer is so great, and touch on a few of the best things that go into summer and prepping for deer season.
As a kid, I always remember my dad and his yellow legal pad with his “To-Do List” penciled at the top. He's the hardest working person I know and he always has a plan. If anyone had the right to tell me my priorities were wrong, it was him. He may not admit it, but he gets stuff done, and it’s all because he has a plan.
This past weekend signaled the end of my shed hunting for the year as I took a last minute day trip out to North Dakota and was able to scoop up a couple antlers. Now that shed hunting is over, I wanted to take a look back at the last few months through some photos, and show you how my shed hunting went this year.
