This is the first year that i, well me and my hunting buddy have been getting ready to implement some QDM tactics and i have to say im really excited!! We have a lot of work to do but we are both totally up for it!!
[ul][*]LOTS of Hinge cutting and chopping of unwanted trees.[*]Putting the New Trail Camera's out and hopefully getting some great shots.[*]Making brush piles and thick cover areas out of those trees/brush we cut and hopefully the deer will end up using them for bedding and what not.[*]Shed hunting, Shed hunting Shed hunting, im really looking forward to this and getting to know the land better, i guess you could put post season scouting in the same boat as this.[*]Setting up 2 new tree stands/trimming lanes for em, and hopfully setting up a pop up blind as well, all of these will be between the two of us along with improving the other 2 spots we had last year.
[*]I want to plant about 5 acres of plots in some abondoned fields, but with cash flow and this being our first year it will prob be only about 3 or so acres. Hopefully we make the 5 tho.
[*]Also planting some in-the-woods food plots, 3 to be exact, with "Secret Spot" or something to that extent.[*]In a nutshell we just basically want to be as prepared as possible and out of the woods by the end of august at the latest. And hopefully by then we will just be putting in some late season plots and mainly staying out of the woods unless were checking a camera.[/ul]Its going to be a great year! Im really excited!! i know its going to be a lot of work and everything, but i really want to get everything done and done right at that, this is going to be my most producuctive and most prepared off season so hopefully its my most productive hunting season as well!! Good luck to all of you in your excursions this off season and i hope whatever you want to get done gets done in a safe manner!!
