Honestly....on the lands I just hunted, this year....I feel like I scouted them pretty well throughout the season. My next moves are to do some trail/stand site maintenance. I need to create a more easily traveled corridor where a natural funnel exists.....but the presence of blowdowns makes it hard for them to move. I've got a day's worth of work (Chainsaw/atv)in this area.....and I'll have it done before the year's out. It shou;d make for a GREAT bow stand next year.

I picked up 100 more acres, too. I'll be walking them as soon as we close here on the 20th (with a topo).

Turkey season.....more in-woods scouting. Summer....check the ag fields.

Yep. Turkey hunting gives me two excuses to be in the woods in the spring...scouting and looking for birds. Usually once Turkey season is done i will work on the food plots and clear natural funnels and shooting lanes.

Next year will not be as intense as this past year, as i know alot more about this land tan last year. Signs (rubs, scrapes, trails) noted this year will be important to know next year.

One thing I plan to do this year is "re-scout" my main hunting spot. I need to walk into some areas(even tiny ones) that I haven't gone thru in a while. I am going to try and view the property as if it is the first time seeing it. I've gotten too complacent "knowing" everything about it.
I also intend to clear out some lanes for at least a half dozen more trees.

I check the thickness of the ice every day waiting for ice fishing.[8D] This year I'll be spending some time looking into the swamp with the 243 across my lap waiting for a coyote to show.
