How do you occupy your time in the stand....?
I don't get a lot of time to hunt every year.....so when i do i hunt and pay attention every minute.....
I look at the trees changing colors...i look for the quietness and the beauty of the outdoors. I love every minute of it, because it's so short lived. I watch squirells and birds......all kinds of stuff. I really listen to the sounds and listen for changes, as it can mean a deer is walking up.
I don't mess with phones and all that....i just simply hunt, pay attention and mentally rehearse how i'm going to breathe calmly and I visualise the arrow releasing, hitting it's target.
