BUILDING AGAIN. After tonight’s cold front, we’ll go through the same building pattern we’ve experienced the past couple of weeks. A cooler start, growing into a warm weekend is again in the mid-range forecast for the last full week before hunting seasons begin to open two weekends from now.
CONSTRUCTION TIME. For those erecting permanent deer stands for the fall, Outdoor Life has some of the more, er…creative options available. Checkout the Tenement on Wheels (that there’s an ‘RV’ Clark) that gets repurposed!
TEAR DOWN. If you’ve got a GoPro, or other video camera, take a few frames of your shotgun mount or bow draw to check out your technique. Break down the process, adjust your hold and other factors to find a better shot before fall!
