Anybody setting up stands yet? I use a climber and test climb. Braving the heat tomorrow to walk around.

Will you be marking a nearby tree so you can find it in the dark? Are you asking yourself why a deer would pass by within range of this tree?

Some locations I randomly mark trees to confuse others as to where I'm going. Markers to my left go nowhere and stop nowhere.

Wild bill the deer walk through this area no matter what. Food or no food its just one of those areas. Been hunting it for 5 years. Its public land and I ve seen about 5 guys in 5 years.

Early next week in MO it is supposed to be a little cooler. I hope to begin hanging eight stands with sticks.

Set six stands a week ago...more going up tomorrow. Hope to have them all (two dozen+) set before Labor Day.

Man if I had to set up decoy stand sites or trail markers to fool other hunters I’d hunt somewhere else…. Just my opinion

Where I hunt it’s too thick and green to set up any new stands. Usually mid September

I have over 50 in place and the kids I hunt with have been trimming paths and shooting lanes as well. The heat and humidity here is terrible. I probably will not even hunt in my home state this year. I am hunting 4 states over the next 4 months and will do that mostly from a saddle or the ground. Shawn
