    Personaly Goals for Next Year - Hunting or Non-Hunting related

    Since it has been a little slow around here since the season wrapped up. I thought I would start a thread where we could post our goals for the next year as well as place to keep track of how we are working towards those goals and any challenges we encounter. Sounds like fun right?

    Goals for next year:

    1. I would like to get into better shape come hunting season. I hunted out of my climber this year for the first time in 2 years and was amazed at how out of shape I was and how much I hurt the next day after carrying my climber and walking through snow for an hour.

    2. I want to spend more time exploring and scouting in the off season. I did get out a few times small game hunting after christmas this year but the snow and ice has made getting around more difficult than it is worth at this point. As soon as the weather breaks I want to try to go for a walk in the local game lands once a month to see what I can learn.

    3. I would like to continue my hunting success. I have had the pleasure of harvesting two deer each of the last two years and I would like to keep that trend up. Learning my hunting lands better should help.


    Game plan to attain my goals.
    1. Get in better shape
    - I started an the T25 exercise program 5 weeks ago and have lost ~10 or 11lbs so far and I feel great.
    - I plan on doing the P90x3 program once I finish the T25 program.
    - I have been eating healthier the last 5 weeks mostly meat and lots of veggies. Less eating out etc. This is something that is sustainable for me versus a super strict diet. I need this to last long term not just a few months.

    2/3. These are simple. I just need to make sure I get out and explore my local hunting grounds at least once a month during the off season. Hopefully more. I have every other friday off of work. I hope I can use that time to go for a walk in the woods.


    So what are your personal/hunting goals for the next year? Those are mine.

    well your right about being slow here, been a down ward sprial since the rut LOL

    well, I again, don't have any plans to deer hunt 2015 season, if I have any plans , I think I plan to build a new rifle or too for some odds and end;s things I do
    shooting wise
    might think about buying a new atv and just maybe getting back into fishing more than I have in the past
    also want to toke a few trips out west this yr, maybe add fishing, or an atv trip with that!

    other wise, this yr will be perttty much the same as last yr for me I think?
    I hope less stressfull and costly LOL

    I hope to do some work on the property that will help hold deer there throughout season. Hinge cut, timber cut, etc..
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Sounds like a good time Big_Holla. Nothing like some chainsaw time. That reminds me it is almost firewood cutting season for me.

    My goals:

    Don't eat a tag in 2015/16

    Scout more.
    Commit to take both my sons out this year (regardless of sports obligations)
    Clear some trails for more stealthy access to stands
    Practice more with my bow
    Scout more.
    Spend at least as much time in the woods as last year

    If you want to put a dent in populations of coyotes, now is the time to hunt, its breeding season now, so killing a few before that have more, is the time to do so, come spring, damages are done, and there will be more Yotes to deal with just a heads up?

    For my goals this year...

    -Try to get our 2 oldest (5 and almost 4) out in the woods/fields as much as possible. Already planning on taking the oldest turkey hunting this spring behind the house where I shot one last year...she's stoked.
    - Hopefully get a new bow, I love my Diamond but I want to get something faster. And start shooting it a lot this summer.
    - I went out last week after all the snow and dumped some corn and looked to see how many tracks I could find in the food plots. Well it didn't look to good, no fresh tracks, but could see a few that had been walking a around. No one has been back in the plots for a while so not sure what's going on, but I thought they would be tearing the turnips up...nope! So my point is, first decide of I'm going to plant another fall plot. And secondly if I do, do all the work that comes with that.
    - Spend time with the family! We're not promised tomorrow, so I'm going to try to spend as much time with the wife and 4 lil ones as possible. Before I know it, the kids will be running off and wanting to do their own thing, lol.
    - And of course the honey do list!

    That pretty much sums it up for me....so far.
    I live life at full draw....
