I've involuntarily fallen asleep while hunting, but if I'm going to sleep, I'd much rather be in my bed \:\)

I only get about 4 hours on average of sleep before a morning hunt so it's almost guaranteed I will sleep in the woods.

I had a 2 man ladder stand that was perfect for those early archery season naps. There was a branch that I could put my feet on, and I had figured out a way for my harness strap to prop my head up. I could sleep so good up there.

Many does lives were saved by how comfy that was up there.

It's worse on me during turkey season than deer.

I very rarely sleep while hunting but the very few times i sit on the ground its hard for me to stay awake, just another good reason for me to be 25 feet up!

My first few seasons I slept a lot in the stand.

I don't think I have slept in the stand ANY in the past few years.

Hunt stand now, but was exclusively ground in my earlier days. A few years ago, woke up opening day of gun about 30 minutes late. Busted does walking out didn't see anything the rest of the am. Went back had lunch and watched a little football. Went back out around 230...found me a nice spot on ground and took a seat. Figured I had some time before things got active so I laid back and apparently, fell asleep.

Woke up hearing what sounded like an elephant running down the holler. All I could do was get my head turned up to see a 140+ class buck crossing the fence about 30 yards from me.

Completely pi$$ed at myself, telling myself that I am not a hunter... Getting ready to go back in.... Mad.... Lit a cigarette.... Stood.up to.take a leak.....

Next thing I know.... Here came a tag-a-long 8 pointer...nose on ground and not a care in the world about me. With cigarette in mouth and Willy out of coveralls.... I took that second buck. I am sure that was a sight.

Have never questioned my hunting ability again.
