If I'm on a hunting trip I usually hunt daylight til dark, especially during the rut. Much harder to stay put if Im close to home even though I do it ocasionally.

I really like the all day sits. I have done 4 or 5 this year. Had plans on staying all day before, but made kills so ended the hunt early.

I can make it to 11 or sometimes 12 if deer activity is good but I'm not man enough for all day

The most important thing might be to have a comfortable treestand or a nice spot on the ground so you can take a nap!

The thing to do is slowly extend your sits over the season. Once you can comfortably sit until 2, you are in the clear for later in the season when the days are short. It's mental endurance that you have to build up. A short break to do some jumping jacks and get the blood flowing, even laying down for a 20 minute power nap, does wonders.

Glad you're back posting again DH1990. I've never done an all day sit personally but I've hunted mid morning till dark.

Just remember hunting should be fun, not miserable.

I only pull them at high % times in November. If I don't have pretty good confidence in seeing a good buck I normally wont sit all day in a tree!
