I spent 13 hours on stand yesterday staring at the same cut down. All I seen were mosquitoes,birds,chipmunks and grey tree rats. The constant hum of crickets was a natural hypnosis. The stand is in a good area so I stuck it out. I wish I had brought a hunting mag. I started text messaging a bunch of people for excitement. Yesterday was the true test of my patience. 5 years ago I would of climbed down looking for action.
