Hanging early Treestands

Reading deer tracks is a important part of figuring out a good place to setup early season treestands. Below is just a part of a good article that you might want to read.

2. Standing Crops Standing corn is killer for an early season hunt. Often, deer get in that crap and rarely come out. But they do come out. The good thing about corn is the bear ground it grows on. It’s easy to see tracks. Walk the edges of the corn to see where deer enter and exit. What you find will probably appear random, but you might find a pattern. If you do, camp out on it.
