Best Time To Hang Treestands: It's Not Now

“Your treestands should be hung well in advance of hunting season to minimize the disturbance to the area you intend to hunt.”
There. I’ve done it. I’ve just earned my membership card to the old school outdoor writer’s guild. Thing is, that opening sentence? It’s not at all what I actually do.
I realize I’m a little different sort of cat. I’ve been told that many times before and I’m sure it’ll be stated again. I also know I'm not the best deer hunter in the world. Not even the best in my county. Maybe not even the best in my house ...
Many of the stands I'll hunt this fall won't be hung this summer. Some of them are already up, not because I've worked that far ahead but because I never took them down at the end of last year. Others won't be hung until after the season opens.
