I have started looking forward to Oklahoma's opening day of Oct. 1 for bow hunting. It seems like every year there is more and more stuff to do to get ready. Practice is obvious. I have been trying to shoot as much as possible lately. I have dug through the storage building to find as much of my hunting gear as I could, and have made a list of missing or broken items to be replaced. A couple weeks ago I ordered some new shooting equipment, and finally have it all assembled and ready to start practicing with it. Today I went out and hung all but two of my sets for early bow season. Even with all this done there is a ton of stuff left to do. Here is my "to do before October" list:
Plow 3 food plots
Plant something in plots (if it ever rains)
Scout a couple new areas
Hang at least 2 more sets for SW wind
Pack the Pack
Get some "treestand food"
Do a little more trimming at a couple sets
Tune bow with new arrows
Wash all hunting equipment/clothing
Find a new set of boots
And probably some other stuff I cant think about at the moment. Does everyone have this much stuff to do before season? Maybe I should have had most of this stuff done already, but it seems like I am getting slower.
