Treestands Do You Know The Perfect Spot?
Finding your ideal tree for your treestands is something that your can spend a lot of time doing. The best time is way ahead of hunting season. That way there is no pressure and you can make sure it is the right spot for you.
You can scout out the game and find out where they spend most of their time, sleeping and eating.
Everyone seems to be of a mind that hunting from treestands will increase your odds of getting game. Wind is one of the most important factors when choosing your tree location. You must place your treestand downwind from the expected travel land of your game. You have to check the prevailing winds and the thermal winds. Thermal winds change throughout the day as the air heats and cools. The usual is going up through the day and going downhill at night.
There is a basic rule for the height of your stand, but try to get it up to where there are tree limbs, or other cover for you to break up your outline. The standard height is around 15 feet to the footrest. The one thing that you will have to consider is not going to high because you have an expected shot with a bow which if it is to steep an angle it will limit your ability to get the best shot that will bring down your animal.
