I try to shoot some 3D and when I'm not, I practice in the back yard 3-5 days a week. Keeps my shooting up to par. I really try to stay involved in archery period during on and off season. I really start my scouting after closing weekend of season. Then start putting out minerals, some habitat improvement and any other things I can do to improve my chances. Then I try to pick up other spots to hunt. If I can, I buy gear. Then come June I set stands. After that I stay the heck out of the woods. When season comes I make adjustments based on deer sightings and try to kill. It's a revolving cycle.
