It's past Labor Day now, and it's time to start getting ready for the hunting season. Ill be hunting on family land this year and I've got some catching up to do. I need to bush-hog and set up my box stand, and Dad's tractor hasn't had a good battery for several years. We've been jumping it off, and that's not the answer. So today after work I went out to the family land and got the battery out of that old tractor. I'll swap it for a new one tomorrow during my lunch break, and on Saturday I'll go out, fire up the tractor and do some mowing.
Hopefully, by October 1st I'll have my box stand set up and the feeder working. That'll give the deer six weeks to get used to the mowed grass, the box stand and find the corn on the ground. Our land is in Area 1, so my season doesn't start till November 15th this year.
I might ought'a get a hunting license too. That might be a good idea.
