What time in the morning do you try to get into your blind during rifle season?

Right after I corn the road.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

about 30 minutes before shooting light.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

I try to get in about an hour before shooting light, but I've usually got one of the kids with me so getting into the stand isn't the quietest so I like to have that extra time to let things settle down.

Depends on the stand, but generally about 30 minutes before the sun thinks about coming up. We have another stand that requires being a little more quiet on the walk in and I try to get into the stand about 45 minutes to an hour before the sun comes up.

I am only good for about 2 - 2:30 sitting until either my back or bladder gives out, so try to arrive about 1/2 hour before legal light.

Depends on which stand I hunt and if I am after a specific deer. I have been in my stand 2 hours before daylight before when hunting a specific buck that would always show up way early. Some stands I can get there when the sun is coming up and others I have to walk a mile+ and be there 30 minutes before the sun comes up. The safe answer is to be there before the feeder goes off.

Depends on blind range, set up. Some I can show up at daylight due to range 200 yards and terrain, others at 75 yards show up one hour before daylight

30 mins before legal shooting hours so an hour before sunrise. Feeders for off right around legal shooting time so that gives me at least a half hour before the feeders go off.

Depends on many factors. It took me 6 years to figure out that getting to my blind 30-45 min before daybreak was a Bad mistake. Once I figured it out, I’d sit in my truck until I could see, then choose my entry route through the crop fields according to where the deer were feeding. Then lost that lease the year I figured it out 👎

Usually sat a brushed in tripod. Enjoyed getting in early on a crisp clear morning. Settle in and observe the stars. Passing satellites are a treat while watching for shooting stars. As the stars begin to fade and the dark begins to gray the birds are first to start calling. There’s no light on the horizon yet but it’s time to start paying attention. The naked eye is best to pick up movement but not enough light to focus detail without optics. You just know every movement is a buck until you glass and find a scrub jay. I have just killed an hour, enjoyed every minute. Now it’s time to hunt.

If it’s cold and drizzling, to hell with it. I’m going to a ground blind and probably snooze in place for half an hour.

Same here... But until recently, I have always hunted a tree climber... It is a noisy process getting up the tree and I like to get everything settled in.

Around 5am. I get in there and sleep. Yes I could stay in bed longer, but I’m still going to sleep in the blind, so I get that out of the way before the sun is up.
