tv in deer stand

I take my 12 v. tv to deer stand so I can watch local news/weather till it gets daylite. Also in Nov. when they run at tex motor speedway, I can watch Dale Jr. lead the pack coming out of corner four then look over at my feeder pen and watch all the nice 8 pointers. Ant life grand!

I like to sit and watch my surroundings too, but I get bored after awhile and without my bible I would fall asleep and I don't want to miss anything.

Pretty cool how everyone does something different. I love to watch the red & grey squirrels, and the chickadees especially if one lands on your bow or even hat. Between late morning owls, raccoons, porcupines, grouse, turkey & deer, I usually stay occupied. Problem with red squirrels is once they see you everything in the woods knows you're there. It's funny though to have one 2' away trying to figure out what you are, it might take 15 minutes for them to finally shut up and leave.

I try to identify every sound I hear. Type of bird or animal by name. Not only does it pass the time well but it also is the way to see your deer before he sees you. After awhile you will be able to tell every bird by his song even without ever seeing him.:yes:

I also try to id the sounds I hear. I also try to memorize the woods around me in order to spot something that wasn't there before. This is an on going deal cause the amount of light changes the way things look.

I saw a log turn into a P&Y once! Went and got my eyes checked after that one. Still don't know how that deer got there. It was too early to be drinking. Oh well never got a shot off anyway too much brush.:nerd::shocking:

Without falling a sleep, sometimes I have to close my eyes to take the strain off till light enough to see. That 15-20 minutes of just before light is a killer both on the eyes and imagination.
