I have been trying to think about what all i need to get done so when October hits i am ready to go. I figured i would see what everybody else has left to do so maybe it will help me to not forget anything. Trying to get it all done before September so there is a month or so to let things settle.
- Hang Stand (kind of behind the 8 ball on this one, would have liked some of them to be up already but we will get the 5 or 6 hung in August)
- Cut some pull up ropes for the stands
- Cut shooting lanes/ trim at the stands
- Pull cameras
- if i have time, and if needed, get some paths trimmed going to the stands
- And need to get a Quiver... somehow i have lost mine at some point this spring/summer around the house. And it had 5 arrows 5 broadheads in it (not very happy about that)... really hoping it turns up before September so i have time to get another if needed.
- Get some hooks for the trees
Im sure im missing a few other little things that need to be taken care of but those are the main concerns for now.
Im ready for Oct. 5 to be here.
I just have to hang stands and get are homemade stand blind built. that is about it. hope you get your "to do" list done by then... hopefully. Good Luck.

all my stands (6 permanent, 4 trees for climbers)are hung, lanes cleared, bow holders hung, acessary hooks hung trails to each stand marked with tacks and cleared of all debris.. BUT...this is my life, I have no other hobbies I live for this year round, every day all day all I think about is whitetails...
EDIT: sorry, I don't mean to sound like a jerk, please don't take it that way!

I still have a ton to do.
Need to get out and check out my new lease. Put up several more trailcams. Purchase and hang several new stands. Order all my new gear and get my new video camera. Sure I have a lot more to add to that list too.
I'm kind of behind a bit as well.
- Finish trimming trails
- Hang stands
- Set up ground blind
- Trim shooting lanes
- Pull camera SD
Im sure I'll think of more later.

I am going to be making a big distraction on the property so I was going to do it all at once. Hoping it will be on stressful deer in area and not many.
In August when it's time to put the brassicas in. I'm going to build a elevated box blind on that plot. And set up 3 stands throughout the property. Check all cameras while in there. Then stay out until October 1.

Wasnt taken that way at all. If i wasnt an over an hour away it and had a bit more free time other than just the veenings and weekends it would more than likely be done or just about done. I have that last week in August off so if we arent done by then, ill make sure everything gets done.
Its also a new area and really werent sure where we were going to set up. But like i said we are behind the 8 ball.

I have to buy another dozen, maybe half dozen arrows. I'm down to 5. 3D shoots have really put a beating on my arrow inventory. Helped me out huge with my shooting and yardage estimation though. I need broad heads, too.
I have to hang cameras still. I know where they move, I just need to know when. That's what I'm most behind on. I have two new properties I got within the last week that I need to scout completely, also.
As for stands, I really just run around with a climber. So I just clip branches in my way while I'm in the stand.
I feel like I'm way behind the 8-ball this year. Not good...but I'll get there. Still a bit of time left.
