This by far is the worst deer season I have seen in about 15 years, I hunt in the U.P. and we had a Bad winter, wolf population is up, farmer block permit which begin in August, Youth hunts,extended seasons, the DNR needs to get a better handle on the deer count before being so generous with hunting seasons, or this may be a sign of the times to come. I am not alone many people in the U.P. feel the same way. We don't hunt the farmland, there was not alot of deer seen this season.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
