Pre-Season Scouting for the 2020 Archery Season

Pre-Season Scouting for the 2020 Archery Season by Carrie Zylka

It’s been awhile since I’ve published a post here on HuntFishTravel. Life has gotten crazy, yet again. But isn’t that the way of adulting?

With the temperatures in Wisconsin finally dropping below 95, I decided it was time to get out there and find a suitable bow hunting spot. Yes, I know I’m late to the party, but COVID has really put quite the damper on things. Better late than never.

I was pretty spoiled with the condo that I lived in Slinger, living within minutes of public land.

Waukesha is a bit different, I have to travel a bit further. But there are some nice areas.

I love public, and bow hunting provides a peace and solitude that no other activity, except maybe fishing, provides me.

9 round is closed on Sundays, so armed with  my Sagan Life water bottle, I decided a brisk hike up and down the rolling hills of Southeastern Wisconsin was on the docket for the day.

I found a few promising spots, but the best part of today, in addition to the cooler temps rocking it out in the ’70s, was that I did not run into a single other person.

Not one.

I had 4,600 acres to myself.

I’m hoping the trend will continue into the fall season, When I lived an hour north, I rarely ran into anyone while bow hunting. Even on the weekends.

I always feel like I have my own little slice of paradise. of course that all changes late November when the rifle season starts. But for now I’m just going to enjoy.
