It’s my last minute frenzy of a week. I always like to have my stand and hunting property prep done, at the very latest, one month before the season. But many times I find myself scurrying around during the last week of August trying to cross about a million things off my to-do list. And of course, I find myself in that same situation this year. So over the course of the next 3 days my goal is to finish ALL of my last minute tasks on my home farm. Hang a few more stands, finish planting my food plots, clear lanes, clear access routes and set up trail cameras. Wheww. I’m exhausted just writing it all. But even though it’ll be a lot of work, I’m pretty darn thrilled. I’ll be hunting in a matter of weeks, and that’s a beautiful thing.

But when I’m not actually out in the field working on things, I’ll be reading up on last minute tips, tricks and strategies. So with that in mind, here are a few helpful deer hunting related blog posts from across the web. Enjoy and have a great weekend. And PS, if you’re hunting season has begun already…Good luck!!!
