Certainly, there are plenty of basics you probably know as you plan your fall hunts, whether it’s the need to set up stands near food sources or the need for absolute quiet as wildlife draw near.But we saw some tips in a recent blog post by Wired to Hunt that you might not have read or heard from other sources. You’ve been thinking all year about buying your own recreational property so you can have a home base for all your outdoor activities. But now it’s October, and the first signs of winter are coming soon. And, as you think about being out on your own land, you may appreciate these tips even more.
Just a few examples of the tips:
- Put tape on the exposed metal on your tree stands, reducing the chance of metal-on-metal noise as you set up.
- If you have a favorite tree stand that works really well, save it for the rut, knowing the first two or three times you use a stand are the best.
- And get to your stand an hour before daylight, so you are set before wildlife start moving around in the morning.
