The deer season has been over for a few months and you’re already looking forward to next season. What is a hunter to do in between time to satisfy his hunting needs? Here are a few things to do in the offseason.
Go Shed Hunting
Shed hunting is a great thing to do that can really get you excited for next season. It can give yourself some good insight as to what type of deer you might have on your hunting grounds and where the deer might be hanging out at. It’s much better to do this before the grass grows too tall. The shedding can occur anywhere between March and April (times vary depending on location).
Study Maps and Deer Stand Locations
Not have much luck last season? Study topographical maps and aerial maps to get a better understanding of the land you hunt. This is a must if you are looking for that perfect spot. Multiple spots for different winds are ideal.
Work up on your bow shooting skills or target practice. You never want to miss a chance at a deer of a lifetime because your shooting was out of whack!
