What are some things you do to improve the lands you hunt this time of year up until October?
School is back in, College football gets started in about 3 1/2 weeks, and October is right around the corner. I've got fall/winter food plots on the brain but that's a known for the upcoming deer season. I cut some shooting lanes back in the early spring when it was still cool. I still need to do some more thinning and open up a few more spots. Freshening up mineral sites is also on the agenda.
As the summer heat cranks up and things dry out some I take this prime opportunity to spray kudzu. It seems to be more effective this time of year. It also helps stunt it a little more come next spring when it had to fight harder before winter, at least that's what the research shows.
Other than these few things general road and trail maintenance along with limbing any trees that may need it, I also like to try to remove any problem trees or any non-favorable trees from around my oaks that I can. I could go on but at some point I'm just rambling. I work my place by myself 95% of the time so I've ALWAYS got something to do.
