Default Falling Asleep in the Stand????

Ok. So I've been hunting for about 4 years now and I always have a problem with falling asleep in the stand. To me it the best place to be in this world. It's just so peaceful....TOO PEACEFUL!!!! So.... I always fall asleep! I've tried reading, playing games, singing songs, texting.... etc. Still doesn't work. With that I'm usually in the stand for only 3 hours or so. So anyone have any ideas for me???? HELP!!!!

I have never been in a stand, but I think I could be the same way. It is so relaxing for me to be in the woods, I would probably be asleep or so excited to see a deer I would be WIDE awake

ha ha funny funny.... no I usually see deer about 1 to 2 hours after I get in the stand.... Actually... seen plenty of deer... just mainly yearlings and does... I have even woken up and had deer right underneath me... just they weren't big enough to shot. And yes, when I finally see a deer... I'm wide awake!

YES they are QUIET! Or atleast I make them quiet... games- crossword and suduko puzzles, singing- in my head... no I'm not crazy bunny! and texting- actually messed around with this when the doe where literally underneath my stand... didn't even bother them! At first I would press the buttons lightly, but then I noticed... they never even heard it... not to my knowledge and their reactions. the only thing that they actually heard once was the cell phone vibrating in which they looked up for a sec and then went right back to eating.

Coffee... can't do coffee... it doesn't like me... gives me the shakes

I do have a lump in my back where I sit up against the tree... just makes me more reclined though.

Keep a few small game heads on some of your arrows and shoot some squirrels. I use to do that with my bow to help me stay awake. There seems to always be a squirrel around to shoot.

Stand up! if you can't stay awake try not sitting the whole time? whenever I'm getting sleepy I just stand up for a while... if you are about to pass out standing up you are doing something wrong and need to see a doctor

I get a 40% discount thru my company...

You can get a Motorola Q, I think for around $150.....the internet monthly charge is pretty steep, though...something like $70 month...

with my discount it's around $42/month...


One thing, I noticed.....imagine this...as you are surfing 3Dshoots.com

RIGHT NOW.....

Look up.....scan around you.....listen....what was that?


............squirrel....
