For bow I come in early. I like to sit an hour to and hour an a half before daylight. One time I was late getting up and I got to my stand at light. I didnt see anything, but then again who's to say I woulda saw something if I came early too?
For gun, our group takes a tractor out and we like to go in about 45-1hr after light.Just the way we do it. We also leave the woods an hr to 45mins early. Its a big woods, this way it's a little safer. I have shot several deer doing this and havent noticed a difference. However I wouldnt have been able to shoot any of them if I were using a bow.
"If I pull the hammer and shoot this young buck, he's dead. But if I pass on him, the next hunter might not shoot so straight."
