Ok, after starting the thread for morning hunting, I thought I'd see what everyone thought about evening hunting and how late they stay in their stand? Right at dark, half hour after, etc? Sure it depends on if you have deer under you as well. Also, on your way back do you go out of your way to avoid fields, etc, like when you come in during the morning?
Personally, I used to sit in my stand a good half hour after I couldn't see anymore, but now I'm out of there right at dark if I don't see anything. If I have deer under me it's later obviously. Most of my sets I have no other way to get out but go through a field so unfortunately I do end up bumping deer every now and then. Anybody have any tips for this?
