    Would ya sit in a deerstand for 14 hrs straight for a possible shot at a good one.......... overnight!!!!! Sounds absolutely nuts but im considering putting all my eggs in a basket and sitting all night to get a shot at a deer at first light.

    Ive done it during rifle. Coldest ive ever been in my life. Didn’t see a damned thing the next day either. I think i was 20 years old at the time. Id do it again for the right deer. But would need to be in a comfy stand locked down tight.

    I have done it in the past aswell and didn't see a deer. I later figured after I sit there all night I probably left enough scent that nothing around would come out lol.

    I've seriously considered sleeping in my ground blind with the windows zipped up. Had some great morning spots you just couldn't get to without bumping deer. I figured I'd probably make too much noise snoring or something lol

    At first I would’ve thought yes but after reading couple post and thinking about it. With no thermals and wind at night. All your scent probably will just linger in area.

    Im thinking no. It would likely be a miserable experience and if per chance you don’t kill the buck, you would have wasted so much time and comfort.

    I do all day sits as well but I can’t imagine adding on an over night wait-athon. I’d get really bored

    Know a guy from Edmonson county that did it a few years ago in December. Big buck tearing his turnips up. He went in at midnight, and killed that hoss at first light. I couldn't do it.... I wouldn't do it...
