Right now is the best time to scout and get your stands ready, for reasons stated above and because the woods is still like it was in the fall. The foliage is gone so you can see what its gonna be like in Nov.
I don't know about you but I've set up stands in the summer then come fall and leaf drop you can pick the stand out a country mile away.
I personally think this is the time to do everything in the woods for next year. The rubs,scrapes, and trails should all still be there from last fall. The woods looks the same as it does in the fall, all making for the perfect time to set up your sets.
I'm planning on purchasing a climbing stand in August.
If you are set on a climber, I would save my nickles and get a top end model. I don't think many brands can beat Lone Wolf in this regard.
