    I would personally wait and pick a stand after you hunt. I guess it depends on when you expect the deer to show up. If it's not until 9:30-10 then you might be ok to pick another spot after its light

    Probably damned if you do damned if you don't situation,if you do move, you are gonna spook a deer, if you don't a deer will walk right by where you were gonna move.....at least that is how my luck usually runs....

    In the stand on a chilly Ohio morning, coldest it's been all year. Sitting with my buddy on his family farm, he's got bow in hand and itching to get his first deer with a bow. On a small piece of land with only a couple deer so chances are slim, but we will see what happens. Going to my land tonight in search of a buck.

    Holy $***! A Barred Owl almost landed on me. Glad I didn't decide to take a nap once I got to the stand. My heart is still skipping. :eek2:

    That worked out well for me. It ended up being 3 does. I lost sight of the so I turned around real slow in my seat. 20 yds, there one was looking at me. I froze. She jumped and ran about 10 yds. The other 2 does caught up to her. They fought a little. Looks like they forgot about me.

    8:30 ish this morning. Have some things to do. Usually depends on how the deer are moving. If it was up to squirrel movement I'd be here all day!
