    I may move them alittle, but mostly they stay in the same area. it depends on what my scouting turns up. I have a ladder stand that I haven't moved in 4 years. I just check it about mid September to make sure it's still sound.

    I keep putting some stands back in the hot spots. But I always try some new locations just to see what is going on.

    I'm in a new spot almost every day, i don't hang stands though, I just pack my summit in in the early hours and then climb the tree :)

    the place i hunt deer, the owner has his stands up all year, we dont move them, but theirs 4 of them, plus we hide on the hay stack and have a good natural blind spot, so theirs lots of options, saw 96 deer come out tonight, and 2 dandy bucks.... one of whitch i messed up on.... most of the time the wind direction is how i select where i will sit, im hooked up great cause the landowner dosent bow hunt, so i have the run of the place.... tonight was my 4th night in a row, and ill go everynight now till i kill the big one i missed tonight, if i dont gettem with the bow, ill haveto get the thunder stick out i guess :eek:

    yep i counted them. im sure their were more then that, theirs a few blind spots from some tree branches and limbs, so i cant see the entire feild, its pry about 300 yards wide and 400 or so long, and has nice green hay growing in it, gets a lot of deer on it!!
