Any help for off season?

If there any groundhogs where you live, try spot and stalk hunting them. Also try predator hunting. Very challenging and great practice for deer hunting.
If you want a real challenge, go to a shooting preserve and hunt pheasants with a bow and flu-flu arrows. Most fun I haver ever had with a bow!!
You might also get into traditional archery and attend some of the rendezvous.
There is a a Traditional Rendezvous at Marquette, Michigan in Michigan's Upper Peninsula July 19th and 20th. That shouldn't be too far of a trip for you.

You need to try turkey hunting in the spring. I started doing that to ease the pain of the off season. After a few years, though, I got to where I looked forward to turkey season more than deer season. I've since moved to Montana and their are few turkeys in my part of the state, so I'm not doing that so much anymore.

My other suggestion is that you and your wife have kids... you will have less time on your hands to be obsessed with all the diapers needing to be changed. Big smile

my oldest boy is out of high school and my youngest is a senior, Thumbs up i have been waiting for them to grow up so i can share the wood's with them and then we can hunt as much as we want, it's GREAT!

Welcome to BGH.

Have ya got coyotes up there? Bet that would be a challenge with a bow. You might also have fox.

We do have coyotes, but i never really thought of it. This spring i have been taking care of the rabbit population in our area, that's really helped, they cleaned my garden out, so i really had no other choice. I put my leafy wear camo on and go sneaking thru the wood's, it's amazing how close a guy can get to them rabbit's Big smile

I would love to try pheasant hunting with those flu-flu arrows, i have watched it on t.v. it is completely amazing taking a flying bird with a bow and arrow, can you imagine how fine tuned you would be with your bow by the time the deer season started? you would miss NOTHING!
