These are 5-Day guided hunting trips and are conducted from tree stands or ground blinds. There is no still hunting or stalking of deer permitted. There will be many opportunities for deer sighting during this five day hunt. We will be in the stands a half-hour before daylight and the typical sit is about 3-4 hours, during the rut we have hunters that sit all day from before dawn until dusk. This is a great tactic, but it requires a lot of concentration. Many of the hunters will take a break from 11am-2pm, or so, and then take a stand again until dusk. Most times this is recommended because you don't want to be fidgety during prime time towards evening. See New York State DEC regulations for hunting with a bow and arrow.
