Although the warm summer temperatures are just now starting to roll in to the Texas, plenty of whitetail deer hunters are already planning out their moves for Texas deer hunting season. Regardless that opening day is months away there are many things that hunting enthusiasts can do to prepare for their first trophy whitetail deer hunt of 2015.

Before getting into the deer stand it is important to visit the shooting range. For hunters you can never practice shooting enough. The summer months are a perfect time to reorient yourself with your gun to make sure that you have a firm grasp on how to properly operate it.  If you recently bought a new gun or scope it is even more imperative that you spend some time at the range.
