The long wait till next season bow hunting

Yes, the season is over. Yes, it will be 8 months till season opens again. Yes, there are things that you can do to pass the time. Think of all the hunts and things you should of had and didn't. Make bow ropes. Go knock on a few door's and see if you can't get permission for this coming season. Go look for sheds. If you want a new bow go get one know. This gives you plenty of time to get comfortable with your bow and shooting straight. If you don't want to pay to shoot at a archery place make your own. It doesn't take much. Get a target and a distance of ten yards. Its not as much about distance as it is about fundamentals.Make your permanent tree stands know so that the deer get used to them.
There is nothing like reading books to learn the mind of a whitetail. I would recommend downloading Google earth on to your computer. This is a Ariel map of the world. You can zoom in on potential hunting spots. Only one problem is that it doesn't give any land owner information. You will have to use a plat book or drive to there place to get permission but it might be worth it.

Go shopping for new clothing and gear. Especially calls. This gives you plenty of time to practice with them and become a better caller.

So shoot now, scout now, buy gear, and eventually the season will be here, and you'll be on top of your game.
