    Default I stay

    I stay until I cannot see, and then I wait until I think it is a good time to go. If I hear deer coming, I usually sit tight so as not to spook them. Sometimes, I have no choice, and then I leave. It all depends on the situation.

    Default I dont shoot real late

    I just not high on tracking after dark. I usually walk out with enough light to see without a flashlight.

    I hunt in a heavy cover area so I come down when the pins start to fade then still hunt my way out.

    usually until I can't see, then I get lost wandering around the woods for a while.

    I stay until I'm sure that I won't spook deer on my way down or anywhere near my stand, it's ususally pretty dark by then. I try to walk out without a flashlight to try to minimize the impact on any deer that I may encounter on the way out.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    Default dark

    I stay until it's black, then come out as soon as I can. I have stayed in stand for more than an hour after dark because I had deer under me.

    every once in a while i will still hunt out as well though

    I've watched the a nice buck for near 2 hours once during a full moon. at 40 yards he was further than I wanted to shoot at, and the law said I couldn't, but I was wishing I could have crept up on him. Normally I only stay after shooting light If I am surrounded by deer or wish to see who will show up within the first hour.
