It's a question we spend far too long thinking about.
I often spend a lot of time trying to figure out when to access my stand. Many factors play into this decision, such as the time of year, my weapon of choice and the stand I'm going to.
Well, here's a video that might help you make that decision.
Watch the video:
I admit I was the guy who would say I have to be settled in my stand 30 minutes before daybreak. That may not be the best time for all of my stands, though. I could be spooking deer that are hitting scrapes I'm hunting over or running off a buck cruising for a doe.
Hopefully this video can help you decide when to enter your stand next.
