When do you move your stands?

There are always a few stands I like to move every year. Most of the stand sites I have are always successful, but if you know what I'm talking about they weren't just quite in the right place. I have a number of stands that I haven't moved in years. But, there always seems to be 3 or 4 that I like to move to that just right spot. I like to do this about this time of year. There is still not alot of growth and the ground is fairly saturated from the winter thaw and spring rains. It makes the trails that are heavily used easy to spot. Also the temperatures are usually pretty good to do this in as well. When do you guys like to do your stand arranging for the next season?

On private property we like

On private property we like to move stands in late spring/early summer. On public land we wait until just before hunting season - have had stands stolen on public land! Last year we set up a Brickhouse Blind on private land in late may and left it alone all summer so the deer would become comfortable with it.  Sunlight really caused deteration of the fabric and a wind storm during hunting season destroyed the blind, i believe because of the deteration of the fabric.

I put one blind up about 1

I put one blind up about 1 1/2 years ago and the fabric still looks good and it has survived wind, rain, snow, everything that mother nature has thrown at it. it must be a pretty good blind. It is an Ameristep blind.

Within the last couple of

Within the last couple of weeks, I have moved two stands and hung one new one. I still want to move one more and put one new one up. Even though I have been hunting in the same area for quite awhile now and have pretty good success every year, it never ceases to amaze me why I didn't choose these sights in the past. Does anyone else ever think this way?
