We are going up to look for good hunting spots this weekend but we don't put our stands out until the day before deer opener.

Most of my stands never come down. They just move around a little. I do go out in late august and check shooting lanes and the condition of the stands (check bolts, squeaks...) I only hunt on private land.

Anytime from July on, usually August. I just pulled a portable on Friday. I've still got another one or two I'd like to get out in the next week or so. The snow got too deep before I knew I was done hunting. May hunt the same tree again, may not, I like to get the stand out of the element for a few months & then I don't have to worry about straps & pegs growing into the trees.

I've got a buddy that needs to move that will likely stay out. They're too hard to haul & take too much room to store.

Before the sun does the morning of the hunt.

I hunt exclusively out of portables, and I carry it all in with me on opening morning.

Talking bow or rifle, ladder, portable, perm. ? Mine have been up since 1983 in the exact same spot(s). I have added a few ladders here and there but just finished for next fall, lanes, etc. My feel on getting a mature buck is to not alarm him close to the season, I stay away as they seem awfully touchy in the area I hunt and there are so few mature bucks, I figure it helps my odds to not be pounding nails or scenting up my area(s) so I'm all set for Nov.8th or whatever it is and I don't have to rush or worry something isn't ready to go.

Other hunters I'm sure could have a rock concert going on and bag a beauty the following day, but I stick to my theory. I think a bit to is they don't get too human conditioned because it's not multi-purpose land meaning I don't grouse hunt it or duck or goose and no one is bow hunting that area.

I like to do all my scouting and get most of my stands ready right now. The woods are wide open so you can see a long ways, no bugs or ticks, and you can see last years deer sign which can be very helpful for stand placement. I might sneak in and do a little trimming in August but I stay as scent free as possible.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
