Early season things we need to correct.

Unread postby Tennhunter3 » Sun Aug 30, 2020 12:24 am

It's our velvet hunt here in Tennessee first morning in the tree.

As we know the first hunt of the year is often rough.
Thought I would post a few issues I had.

Going in before daylight 4am I carried my quiver by hand and somehow I hurt my fingers twice on my broadheads. Guess at least I know they are sharp lol. I did have band aids which was nice.

Soon as I leave the woods a will be picking up a new detachable quiver.

Had no bow attachment to carabinder.
Did have my tethrd accessory rope.
And putting carabinder on cam is noisy I did fix this issue juryrigging it by using a sitka spandex headband I was wearing and wrapping around bow back through itself works better then i expected..

Made this mistake of not carrying a can of off and find myself swatting bugs.

Hopefully you guys can remember issues like this and have a smoother hunt. Some minor things could have made this sit much more comfortable.

Didn't hunt any of my best spot more of a test spot. Because I knew it would be rough.

What have you wished you had done differently or brought early season.

Not season here yet, but thanks for sharing. Yeah fix that quiver problem.

I have been already testing all my stuff and making adjustments. Stealth strips should be in the mailbox today so I can quiet buckles and carabiners.

Last year was my first season Beast hunting and mobile hunting. I quickly learned that silencing my gear is a priority. During quarantine, I stealth stripped all my LW sticks and carabiners. Two weeks from today is Wisconsin's opener and I'm sure I'll need to add to the list.

During lunch I Picked up a few small nite eyes s carabinders.
To hold my bow, quiver, rangefinder.
A trophy ridge detachable quiver appeared to be the best my towns tiny sporting goods store had. Hopefully it will do ok can't be worse then what I had.

Put a small thing of off in my bag.

Put some stealth strips on the side of my boots where they rub some while walking.

Hopefully the afternoon hunt will go smoother.

Takes a few hunts to get it all down and fix the tiny things.

In hot weather walking in a prefer a headband over a beanie. Was lucky I had it on or I would've had to hold my bow by hand all morning. Amazing how useful a elastic band can be.

Lucky you we have another month here. The small nite eyes work pretty well. I put one of these on my rangefinder as I never have to detach from the tree. Works pretty well. I got the small caribeaner 24"

It may be too late for some but if your season has not already started it may be a good idea to make a practice run or two to go through the motions and see what issues you run into. This is especially important for anyone who will be using a new or different setup than they have used before.

I will be using a saddle setup this year so I definitely plan on making practice runs to figure some things out. Good luck everyone!
