    33 days to go!!! Got all my clothes/equipment out yesterday preparing to wash everything this coming weekend and put my hunting clothes in airtight bags with earth scent. This worked well for me last year. Started shooting my bow last week, and very happy with my groups. I'm stoked!!! How about you guys/ladies?

    I try to start shooting the end of June a couple times a week until now. Then I start shooting 2-3 arrows every day... I keep my camo in a "odor free" bag which I put pine needles, cedar and other leaves where I hunt in it. For now, its a chess match of where I will be opening morning and what deer stay on the summer pattern. Good luck!

    Got several ladder and hang on stands hung. I shoot year round and most every day, got to do that when you hunt with a stickbow! Haven't started on my clothing yet but now I will have to. My neck is swelling up bad! What form of eart scent are you using?

    I use Hunter Specialties brand. Last year I infused my hunting clothes with them after washing in unscented detergent, and they worked well. Several times had deer down wind of me who had no idea I was there. Some time back a study was done showing that infusion with a native cover scent was far more effective of hiding scent than just using spray.

    IMG_4441.jpg Yep; getting ready to go check a Cam and add a few steps on a hang on stand that is a little challenging to get in, I ran out when putting it up. Last time I only got young Bucks picture.

    IMG_4439.jpg Maybe the trail will be a little dryer today. Last time I felt like it had rained a little.

    Once I get off the boat I'll have 10 days to get everything lined out. Been using the bow trainer everyday after I come off watch, hang one more set when I get home then wash clothes tweeking my bow a little, and pull cards.

    I'm ready! Don't have a good bean field to hunt,so I'm hoping for at least a big ol nanny to turn into sausage! I'll be glad to get in a tree,no matter what.

    Set a few more stands today, look closely at my nest in the big tree in the center. There is a hang on up there somewhere.
