I think a lot too. Good stuff and bad :x Past hunts, memories, worries about things I have to or should have gotten done lol. But to be honest I text a lot from the stand. I like taking pics of deer that come in and send em to my buddies. Then when it gets about half hour before sunset I focus in a little more cuz as we all know, thats showtime

What!!!..............No one thinks about women.........lol. I usually hit all the open spots with the range finder and sometimes I'll take a short nap if nothing is moving.

I occupy my mind memorizing, word for word, great outdoor stories for story telling around a campfire!

I kinda do the scenerio of how they will come in etc.....But I think alot about "how many deer see my movements and just sneek on by never to be seen" or "dam, that tree looks better"
Then I tell myself "gotta be confident in your set up" LOL.....

When I first get on stand I wonder how many I spooked coming in after hearing them scamper around in the heavy cover. Then I check all my gear my bow and hook up while I listen for movement before the light comes on. Once my pins light up I stand for the first hour or so scaning the area for movement,if nothing is going on I take a seat and delight in the glorious sunrise I just witnessed.The woods come alive with sounds,sights,smells and movement and I think what an awesome creation put on display for us to enjoy. The smell of bacon or sausage cooking,fireplaces burning good hardwoods it is a party for my senses,I hunt in a semi rural area. I offer up a prayer of thanksgiving to GOD and then I wait with vissions of success on my mind of a harvested deer and good eats later during Thanksgiving when the hunters in the Family bring the fruits of our labors.The only negative thing that creeps into my mind is when I think about the ending of the day,I really could stay all night at times. Great question,thanks for asking.

Default Or how to end deer hunting in America

Just get the computer nerd, the cell phone fanatic, the texting freak, the twitter affectionato, the face book lover, the forum addictive, to sit quietly and silently in a tree stand, for three hours, and you'll drive them stark, raving, mad.

“How many deer saw me come in? I know they ALL heard me!”
“Why do I always hear deer BEFORE shooting light??”
“It’s been light for an hour and no deer. I need to move.”
“Ooooo! I hear a deer. Nope, just another squirrel.”
“Are they watching me? Do they know I’m here?”
“My back hurts.”
“I’m not going to bother raising my gun. That’s just another squirrel. Oh crap! It was a deer!”
“Do I really have to pee? AGAIN????”
“I could reach out and touch that squirrel/rabbit/bird/other-critter-I-do-not-want-to-shoot; it has no idea I’m here.”
“I am frickin’ tired. I need some caffeine. That doesn’t make me pee.”
“Deer do not exist. Anywhere.”
“I’m horny.”
“If it’s brown, it’s down.”
“Where is my POA at 10 feet? Nah, my .50 cal would obliterate that squirrel. Not in habit of eating squirrel feet.”
“Screw this. I’m going still hunting.”
