About an hour before dawn, not sunrise, for morning hunts. For afternoon hunts, 2 - 3 hours before dark, if I don't sit all day.

I get in at least an hour before sunrise. I have to get in early as I get in and set prior to the members of the 100 yard club starts tromping into the woods making it look like a Kmart sale day. This has been successful for me as the deer are looking brehind at all the orange farters. I try and go 1/2 tro 1 mile back in.

Our club rule is, "No personal stands. First come first served." If you get to the stand I put up before me then I have to go somewhere else. There haven't been any real problems. I haven't had anyone walk up to a stand I was in. We let each other know where we plan to go, but no one gets to the club before me.

30 min before light works for me. I know guys that will not go in the woodsuntil shooting light arrives. There take is you cannot shoot at what you cannot see. I disagree and like to be in position for guys like this to push deer my way. There on the move and I am not during prime time so I stand to take advantage.
