I can't believe its almost mid September. We've only spent two days in the woods getting ready this year. Dad had to have back surgery and I've been working nights. Our other buddy has been busy at work to. All three of us are finally getting together to do some clearing, planting and other prep work this weekend but we have a lot to do. To make matters worse, the season starts two weeks early this year due to a few low harvest seasons in Georgia state wide. That means we have precious little time to get in and out and hope the deer adjust to our food plots and clearing. We wanted to give them a solid month but with all the stuff we have left to do it may be more like three weeks. How many of you hunters are lucky enough to own and tend the land you hunt on? It's nice to have private land and be the only ones hunting it but man it's a lot of work. How long before opening day do you try to stay out of the woods? Hopefully we get it all done because it looks like it should be a great season.
