Have you ever gone and sat in a stand or climber during the off season to scout?

no i dont. i will do a few of walkthroughs in my area after the season, but i try to stay out of there as much as possible. i have over 2 months to hunt before our gun season in dec. so i have time to hunt the stand from last year and then make adjustments on the fly.

usually the deer use the same travel routes and i dont have to change much. i go in either on a rainy day or a day when its going to rain that night and make changes to the stand before the season, just trim a little and leave. that way when i show up its a complete surprise to the deer i hope.

I do not, like stated above I do a few walkthroughs...mostly only to check cameras. about 95% of my scouting is done from a far. Low impact scouting with spotting scope and good set of binos makes me feel a little better about not spooking deer all summer long.
