    I can't do it all the time, but I try. Today I lasted until noon. I got a cramp in my back and had to walk it out. But most days I can stay dawn to dusk. I bring a book with me to keep from getting bored:bored: . Take along something you can eat easily w/ one hand (because the minute both hands are busy you'll need 'em). Don't eat until later in the day and try not to drink alot. I used to get down around 10, and go back up at 1 or 2. Then one day I stuck it out and around 11:30 this big 8 came by. I couldn't get a shot, but I wouldn't have had the chance if I wasn't there.

    I normally get in around 6:00 or so and leave around 10:30 - 11 then go back in around 1 or 2 and change spots.
