What do you do while on stand?
 
Just curious what you guys/gals do while sitting in your tree stand... in know it can get kinda boring, so what do you do to keep yourself entertained?

I look for deer.

Mainly I look for deer. LOL I can text too usually as long as it is someone that is in the woods about if they're seeing anything or if something is coming towards me from someone else. I don't get how people can read or listen to books/music. It takes away a sense that is so key to hunting: Sight (and sound if your listening to something).
On this playing field, you gotta be sharp as a buck knife, and if you're listening to music, you're about as sharp as a plastic spoon

Text, music, games, etc

My time in the stand is between me and God.
We have our deep talks, listen to the music of the forest, and regain the peace inside myself I lose throughout the week as I tear through work and life in general.
The breeze through the trees is a better symphony than any orchestra on the planet.
The crackle of the leaves, twigs falling, critters moving, it's all part of the experience.
Besides, if you're not completely on your game in the stand, you might miss something, and that something could be the opportunity of a lifetime!
How could you possibly know it's there if your face is plastered to your phone/pda/digital umbilical cord?

I am going to find out what a 30-.06 does to a red squirrel at close range. Hit one with a rock last year when I was sitting in a ground blind. FUNNY AS H***.
