Scout New Land: If laws and regulations permit access with your four-wheeled vehicle, check out new hunting locations now. Study maps and plot destinations to add new options to your longtime list of spots.
As with blind building, it’ll keep you thinking in the direction of fall.
Game Check: How’s the hatch in your area? Wild turkeys and waterfowl are raising broods now. Getting outdoors can offer a nice alternative to simply hunting both. It gives you a good idea of how your favored species are faring locally. As early goose seasons for resident birds go, it will definitely give you a head start with scouting. The same holds true for seeing deer in your area: bucks, does and fawns.
Check that local wild game’s pulse.
Remember the Landowner: The same good people who offer you access to their land for hunting might also appreciate the assistance you can share with your four Yamaha wheels. Offer to do some of the farm work with them. If they decline with thanks, ask twice. Show your gratitude.
