Default What is the least amount of time

If I go out after work, I could be in my tree about 5:00 or a little after, and that would only give me about an hour and a half to hunt. I havent been in a tree stand for the last week and a half, and its killing me. Would you go out if you only had an hour to an hour and a half to hunt? I know this time of the year, any time is a good time, just wondering what others thought.

For me, yes. I was in this situation last night and went eventhough my walk to/from stand was nearly as long as the amount of time on the stand. Saw 4 does, but none got within range. Guess it just depends on your opinion of what your time is worth.

Last year I killed my buck after less than 5 minutes on the stand.

I would go. The last few years when I was hunting close to home I went after work for an hour hunt as often as I could. I miss having the opportunity now. GO!

IMO any time spent in the woods is a good time. Not knowing how far of a walk you have or what effort you have to go through to get into your stand, you might grab a foam seat cushion and find a comfy tree to sit under near a trail leading to a food source.I have done that on a number of occasions when I only have a short time to be in the woods. Doingit this waylimits the time I spend moving around, thus maximizing the time I get to sit and wait. If I were you I would go because you never know what will be walking by your stand if you aren't in it.

Yes, I would go hunt, just be careful not to spook anything walking in, and be ready to shoot in case you walk up on one.
