In ilinois we get 2 days, and maybe a morning, so I sit in stand from 5 am to 5 pm. so i have to bring a little snack, usually something like a snickers bar thats out of the wrapper and in a ziplock bag. and a few waters. If I begin to get restless I usually stand up, strech by looking behind the tree my stands attached too, and stand for a few min. I also watch the squirells, and look for any other animals, I have learned where I am at all the squirells and other small animals (raccoon, and possum) will take off or go up a tree shortly before a deer comes around the stand. And i spend ALOT of time with my slug guns sights on squirells that make me think there deers footsteps. last day right before i call it quits for the year i think i guna learn what a 12 ga slug does to a deer.

I watch for deer. Drink my water. Stand up and stretch. I typically don't sit on stand long tho. I do alot of still hunting and walking. I'm not a good sitter.
