Since the early days of my hunting career when I hunted locations on a whim, I’ve come to realize that every time I sit in a given location there should be a myriad of clear reasons. At a minimum, I select three specific reasons for being there. I’d recommend using this “3 Factor Process” when choosing your own stand sites this season. Every time you find yourself trying to decide where to hunt, list out as many specific reasons for hunting your preferred stand. If you can articulate at least three clear reasons for hunting it, you get the green light. If not, it’s time to explore a new option.
