Do you guys ever eat or drink anything, such as soup or coffee?

Of course! You get hungry sitting out in the cold for 8 hours!
I always have a thermos of coffee, a canteen of water, a couple sandwiches, and a couple handfuls of those little "snack size" candy bars. To tell you the truth, it seems that i ALWAYS have deer walking in just after I pour myself a cup of coffee and it's cold by the time they leave!

Usually a turkey sandwich and some trail mix. Sometimes some PBJ. Either way i always bring a good amount of food. Keeps you warm when you stoke that fire.

I'm a cigar smoker. I wonder if deer would be attracted to the smell of a burning maduro?

A tree stand/condo trick I learned years ago. Take a funnel & stick it into the end of a piece of garden hose. Run the hose down the tree. Put about a 2-3 ft hole in the ground & bury the end of the hose. Lets you take a leak w/o leaving the stand & buries the odor deep.

If you are set up right, they'll never smell you or the cigar...
If set up wrong, it doesn't matter, maybe the cigar will mask your scent...

You're out there to have fun, do what makes you happy...

If I were going hungry and had to kill for food, I'd probably hunt at night, with a light....

I always take a few 20oz water bottles out with me and a few snack bars. I don't always eat breakfast. Eat something......it will help you stay warmer when it's cold.
