What time do you like to get to your stand during the early season for afternoon hunts? I try for 3 not that it always works out.
I try to be on stand an hour before sunset. That gives me a 1.5 hour hunt, which is plenty(for me).
Normally 2 hours before dark but depends a lot on the type of day. Cool, overcast even earlier. Shawn
I try to be 4 hours before dark at least.

As early as I can. I usually nap in the woods a good distance from my stand. So, 2 or so. If I'm ground hunting, I never really leave my stand area. I just sleep when I'm tired, Wherever that is. But, you can bet by about 1 PM, if my butts on the ground, I'm snoozing during early season. It's good stuff
3 hrs before dark

Shoot for 3 hrs.
I would be out there now, (4 hrs before sunset) but theres a line of severe storms gonna be rolling through that I dont want to get caught in. It's warm here today too, so I dont really see the need to be that early.
Usually in my stand by 2pm. by 3rd week of Oct I'm in my stand by noon.
