Its been awhile since my last post. I’m not sure I can put my finger on what has been occupying so much of my time lately, but between three months of hunting season, holidays, a ever-busy nine month-old son and the increasing demands of work, I can officially say that finding extra time is becoming a rare luxury.
My plans for the 2015 hunting season were to keep up with a weekly hunting journal, chronicling my days afield and detailing the specifics of stand set-ups and approaches. Let’s just say it didn’t happen. What did happen, though, was that I got some good footage this fall which I hope to share through a short video of my season which is being edited right now. I also kept hunting logs with weather and lunar data along with deer sightings and times for a vast majority of the archery season. Although it won’t be relayed in “semi-real-time” like I had hoped, I plan to reflect back on the hunting season and bring forward a few lessons learned and areas where adjustments will be made in the coming year. After all, there will always be room for improvement.
As post season scouting gets underway, the promise of a new season should start to get us all excited. I am looking forward to sharing the deer sign we uncover in new areas during spring scouting and if we are lucky we may have some photos to post of a few promising 2015 survivors.
I expect the coming months to be more content rich than the previous few have been. The search for next years buck has already started so there is plenty to talk about.
