Hey Y'all,

Rifle season is right around the corner! I am curious, do y'all sit in the stand all day?

I usually get in the stand around 6:30 am, sit until 10 am. If I don't see anything I leave
Then I come back in the evening around 4:30 pm and sit until sundown.

Depends on how the day is going. If there is good movement, I'll sit all day. If not, I come back in the afternoon

No, not all day. Depends on how active a day it is. I usually sit till 10-10:30 but if I've being seeing quite a bit I might sit until noon but no later. Then I'm back in the stand at around 3-3:15.

Typically an hour before first light until 10am. Then 3pm until dark during whitetail season. If it's the rut could be all day. If I'm axis hunting in the summer rut, it's pretty much all day.

About 30 minutes before the feeder goes off until 30 minutes after. So about an hour.

I never even considered sitting in a stand all day. I'm not that mad at 'em.

Are you walking in or riding in? Do you always ingress by the same travel route? You might want to mix it up a bit. You would be surprised how fast a smart buck can have you patterned especially if you drive in and park.

+1!!!

About 9:00 I start dreaming of a breakfast taco or two and some more coffee, and the football games. This isn't life or death for me, but the combo of being in the blind, the fellowship with my family, eating well, and drinking some good wine and beer is what I look forward to.

Some times all day. Pack lunch, thermos of coffee, water 2 bottles one for hot chocolate in the cold days, snacks, I pad, two guns one night vision. If not moving do a little walk and stalk then back to blind. Dinner around 8 back out after pigs around midnight.
