We get wiser as we get older. The last time I hunted out of a tree stand there was snow on the ground and ice on the board I had to sit on in the tree. There was also ice on the board for my feet to rest on. After 2 hours, I had had enough and went to the truck. When I was younger, I would have sat there all day. Of course, this is what happens when I let my uncle plan the hunt. Great day regardless since I got to spend time with my uncle.
The pond, waterfowl, and yellow labs...it don't get any better.
