Default Sit or stand while hunting?

I am bored at work, so I started a few polls. This one is refering to what you guys prefer to do while hunting from a stand. Do you tend to sit and wait for deer to pop up, or do you stand and wait for deer to show up. I do both. I sit the majority of the time but every once in awhile I stand up to view my surroundings/stretch.

Do both. Have to stretch and get a higher view of whats going on. My legs kinda fall asleep to when I sit to long.

I also do both. Every time I hear a noise similar to a deer moving in I do a quick look around then grab my bow and stand up and wait to see what appears.

I do a combo of both...tend to stand at first light for about a hour and the last hour before dark.

I'm hunting from a blind, so I sit.
I would sit if I were in a stand too.
