Anyone else mow the path to your stands?

I mow, weed whack or cut a path to all my stands. Mostly so I’m don’t contact the vegetation and leave scent. Way too many paths with leaves to mess with them. I will rake a path to get close to a roosted gobbler.

I use my patent pending "Toe Gitter" mower to mow trails early in the season. Just salvage push mowers on garbage day. Get them running, then jack 'em up. It will cut up to a about pinky finger size saplings with no trouble. If I kill it, just set it out an garbage night...

We drive a sxs to within a few hundred yards of all our stands. Have to constantly keep trails clear for it, whether it’s gullies, brush or fallen trees. We clean out with metal blades on weedeater, pruners or chainsaws a couple times a year.
