Hunt All Day: Thirty years ago in Outdoor Life, you might have read the suggestion to find a stump in a good spot and sit on it all day long. That old advice is still some of the best we can offer, especially when the rut and hunting pressure both are on. Set a stand or blind near one of those sanctuaries we just talked about. Climb in with your gear, some water, energy bars or snacks and a pee bottle (though scent-wise, it really doesn't hurt to urinate right off your stand) and sit for as long as you can hack it. Some guy clumping back to his truck at 10 a.m. might chase a shooter into your lap. An eight-pointer might romp past with a doe at noon, 2 p.m. or 4 p.m. Hunters returning for the evening hunt might also kick up a bruiser. You just never know, so stay awake and ready.
