    Buy a mobile set like a lone wolf or xop and hang and hunt. I'm always picking new spots, adjusting setups, stand going in and out on your back is the best way to do this.

    I hunt the same way. Probably 95% of my hunts I have my stand on my back. I seldom hunt more than 2 or 3 times in the same spot in a season and those are spread out weeks apart.
