I had to change hunting stand locations and I'm wondering if cutting 2-3 shooting lanes will be too much disruption this late in the season. What do you think?

I did just that on Saturday. I needed to have two more lanes opened since I saw deer use narrow trails that weren't visible to me. Sure, I didn't see anything for the rest of the day, but I attribute it to the three loud trespassers that tromped right up to me.

Leaves are still falling, wood changing everyday. But like stated try to keep the smells down. Ed

Cut away. I moved a stand on Sunday before the heavy rain came in and had to do some significant trimming. We will see how it works out later this week.

Thanks guys, I'm going to give it a try and see what happens.

I opened up the shooting lane I shot my buck in tonight on Sunday. He never knew what hit him.

I doubt a deer would memorize where each branch of each tree is located.

A squirrel might miss it though. ;)
