Back when I could stand it, all day. Been several years now since I could do that, with family especially, but not the least of which is a back that just can't do it anymore. I can remember heading out, going in, and taking a nap at the bottom of a tree, and wake up with does feeding within 20 yds of me. \:\)

depends on the location where I am hunting but most places I sit until 11:30 or so in the mornings. afternoon hunts about 3 hours before dark until dark. I know I'm missing out by not sitting all day during the rut but just can't seem to make myself sit with the all day hunts.

I always stay until I feel like getting down. That is not meant to be funny. There is no way I am going to sit in a stand if I don't want to. I do not need to kill a deer that bad. Daylight until about 10 is normal for my mornings and 3:30 till dark is a normal afternoon. In the early bow season, cut that by an our.

In the Midwest, during the rut, I often hunted all day but from three or four different stands. Only one time have I sat in one stand all day and that was because I had to. I will never do that again I don't care how long the walk is.

Depends on weather, time of season, and location.. I always go in before daylight and hunt til at least 10:30am, most of the time later.. Evening hunts depends on my 3 factors also. I always try to be in stand at least 3 hours before dark most days..

I have a few stands I hunt all day on certain days.. I've killed 2 mature bucks betweeen 11:30am and 1:00pm. Those were days I was sitting all day. Same tree within 2 days of the same day, 2 years apart.

Dark to dark when the rut has them running wide open, otherwise come out around 11am and back in by 230pm.

I might be wrong but I don't believe I was on a stand any more 2.5 hours last year. Mostly because I had to get down and drag one out. I don't know where I put it but I had a log of stand times and deer seen for last year. Kinda surprised even me. Had three or four 20-minute hunts.

I never walk in the dark or walk out in the dark. Learned long ago how counter productive that is.
