  • any one else visiting their deer stands clearing shooting lanes?

    Preparations

    No..
    I generally wait til mid summer when I can better see what's really sprung up in the way while leaving some cover in place. Though my semi-permanent stand locations are all for archery, so it's not quite a big lift to slide in there for an hour and remove newly offending limbs.

      Agreed. In most parts of the country, certainly where I'm at in the mid-Atlantic, nothing has grown since October, so my stands are more clear now than they were during the season..

        Nope. I do all my stand-related work in late summer or early fall, mostly in September. That way I can cut exactly what I need to, without worry about clearing too much or not enough.

          If I cut now, it just encourages growth over the summer. I'll wait until pighunter starts cutting his.

            I '.m fortunate to hunt several tracts and often never hunt a tract that particular year,plus I always like to hunt different sets to add a liitle variation and keep a fresh Perspective.Retirement suits my lifestyle well as it allows time to meander and look for morels,indian artifacts,drop sheds,twisted cane saplings etc. I carry prun shears to trim limbs and remove limbs from atv trails,I get a lot done now so later when its hot or short on time most of the work is done. Hmmm seems like a heard about a guy that said never put off on tomorrow on what can be done today,
