Im probably the worlds worst at staying all day. In the mornings Ive gotten out of the blind as early as 830 several times. Actually once I got out at 805, and got my best buck at 810, I ve been trying to stay longer and longer, but 930 is about as late as I ll stay. sometime Im back in my stand by 10-1030 for a noontime hunt. On afternoon hunts I like to get in the stand no later than 230 and of course stay till dark, I Have more patience in the afternoon hunt, mornings always make me think about breakfast too much.

I'm like Lee, I go in when it's dark and I don't come out until it's dark.

Same here on weekends , during the week I try to squeeze in as many hours as my job will allow .

Bow starts Sept 15 and I hunt it till November 1 3 or 4 days a week, weekdays 3 till dark and Saturdays Dark till 0900 and 3pm to dark. I see most of the der early and late anyway when I have stayed all day. There is no one else in the woods to move the deer during the day!!! Unlike most I usually hope for someone to disturb the woods.

Rifle is Nov 1 till Dec 30 and I hunt most of November 3 or 4 afternoons a week and Sat & days off dark till 1000 & 1400 till dark on days off. Nov 1&2 all day and opening of the regular season all day, Nov 15. December gets cold and the deer go nocturnal so I hunt less mostly a few hours in the morning or evening.
