Every out of state hunt I've done, I've sat all day if that was what we were asked to do. I get ramped up enough for the possibilities of what could walk out next that I don't need my phone or a book. I shot a buck in South Dakota one year that if I'd been in a book I'd never seen it chasing a doe 500yds away. I've been fortunate on bout half my hunts I've killed first day. Here in KY I hunt all day fm Oct 20 til end of Nov.
