When is the Best time to Scout after Season?

When is the Best time to Scout after Season?

Show Notes

The obvious answer to "when to post-season scout" is "anytime you can". Most hunters though are limited by family obligations, house projects, or desire for other pursuits like fishing or shed hunting that time of year. So being able to choose the most effective time to get out in the woods to learn the land and previous season's sign can be important.

In this episode, we discuss how to answer that question. In addition, the answer is broken down by habitat type. Certain types of terrain have much more forgiving scouting windows than others, and it can make sense to strategize a spring scouting season around which land has the tightest window for "best scouting" and filling in the gaps around it.
