There is hardly a week that goes by that I am not doing some kind of scouting or hunting. I am always in the woods and roaming the mountains. My biggest break from deer is during spring turkey season when I hunt multiple states.


Some do. Some don't. I just might...

Some how shed hunting season, morel season, chicken/chanterelle/trumpet season, mountain biking and dog walks inevitably become scouting season for me. I've some how curated a set of hobbies that give me an excuse to be in the woods year round. And while in the woods there's never a point where I'm not surveying areas for likely big buck habitat. However, it's not always my primary focus.

I don't call it a break but rather forced time out of the woods. My wife's an accountant so tax season and workload increases starting in February. That means I stay home with the kids which I love. We get a lot of snow anyway so scouting isn't really worth it. Come march and April, I will start my shed hunting and scouting. I already have 2 new spots picked out to walk once the snow disappears.
I've noticed I am slowly losing the desire to Turkey hunt and rather spend time scouting for deer. It's hard to balance it all....
