is it to close to the season to go find a spot

6 posts in this topic

i already have a few spots i liked in public land and kind of have like 10 different places i picked out to be able to set up depending on different wind directions and in case these places are occupied. theyre on CARLOS AVERY WMA

i want to actually go place 10 20 30 and 40 yard markers is it too late to do that?

Will my scent still be there on opening day of bow season?

if anyone wants to share some hot spots with me let me know. im not out there for a monster buck im out there to harvest some meat... actually the main reason is to get my brother to harvest his first deer.

I would go and place those markers now. Remember that whenever it rains all your scent will wash away. I would also go in as scent free as possible and leave without delay. This should not be of any problem for you.

You have plenty of time. I would not hesitate. I have a couple spots as I live only 5 minutes from a few spots. I still have to get out scouting I usually do most of my pre season the first week of Sept.

I've moved stands during the bow season and increased the amount of deer that I see. Thats why I like portable stands, easy up, easy down. You will need to put it off the beaten path though. You don't want the deer to have to walk under or around your stand, they shouldn't know its there.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
