In South Carolina you can only shoot between 1 hour before official sunrise and 1 hour after official sunset. Sitting in a stand at midnight would be dumb. I plan to be in the stand 1.5 hours before official sunrise. To get there, I walk as quietly as I can. If there's a full moon, I give myself a little more time and walk slower. As I get close to it, I'll walk a bit then stop for a few seconds. There's a better chance of being seen so I walk like a deer.
