My season here in TN starts next saturday(sept 24) how about everyone else. I cant wait, but Im not expecting the same success I had last year. I shot six deer last year 3 bucks 3 does including 1 wall hanger.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
