Every cool spell I ask my wife if she could make it out in the deer stand on a cold night and every time she says, "no". I've always loved camping and think I could survive a period of time out in the woods....so here I sit: be it I'm in a shelter. I ate supper and made a haul back here to the pasture. The blind is 6x9 so I have plenty or room. My full battle rattle includes: GI sleeping bag with shell, rifle and gear for the morning hunt, small cooler with a few waters, Diet Pepsi, cereal bars, a first generation NV monocular for entertainment and a jacket that will more than likely be used as a pillow. Current temp shows to be a cool 40. I have a few heaters in here and several bottles of propane so I shouldn't lose any of my toes. I'm sure I will want to get the heck up and out in the morning so this hunt just started.

You still on nights? If so, you'd better get your 2100 breathing treatments done.

Saw two 150s go at it this am. It was a knock down drag out fight. One 10 only had 1/2 rack before the fight. He did get whooped though

I've been getting a lot of night pictures on my camera so getting ready to break out the NV. Feeder is about 50 yds down pike so surely I can make out something.

I'm not hunting anything tonight. I just thought it would be fun to stay in the deer blind tonight. In the morning, I'll have no excuse to get up, pee and open the windows for a deer hunt. I'm just getting to my blind about 10 hours early. Let's see just how "fun" this will be.

I have pulled the all nighters before, broke it up with a little coyote calling a few times before 2am. I did have a propane operated coffee pot and those are super handy. Did find a good 5 gallon bucket with a few plastic shopping bags work great for a emergency crapper LOL

Hard part was fighting boredom if you cant sleep.

I've just always wanted to stay out here since I build my big blind two years ago. It's roomy and has 7 windows. I hung some cloth over the windows so I'm not blaring light everywhere. I usually open three windows while hunting so I'm not totally exposed. As for the crapper, I'll bail out of here and find a thicket to do my business. Besides, with all my gear I brought down here tonight plus my regular stuff, I don't have anywhere to put a crapper.

I recently sealed the door and it's not too bad. I bought an old Coleman heater at a garage sale for a $1, have another "homey comb" heater ($2) and a double bottle Buddy Heater ($75) so it's not too bad. It's up to 65 in here now and I'm only using the Coleman sparingly.

I figured I would have heard coyotes by now but nothing yet. There is a single tree branch between me and my feeder that needs to go....it's making a heck of a glare on my night vision.

It's time to crawl into the bag. Let's hope nothing gets me tonight. Morning can't come soon enough.
