If Weaver has a secret to his success, it's persistence. When he thinks he understands the ramblings of a particular trophy animal, he literally hunts from daylight until dark in one location. When inclement weather sets in, he can still be found settled in for the duration. Weaver is confident that his ability to hang tough on stand from sunup to sundown has resulted in a significant number of his trophies. In fact, when asked the best time to hunt a stand, Weaver simply replies, "Many experts subscribe to the notion that the best time is the first time. In my opinion, the best time to hunt a stand is when a trophy happens by, whether that's the first or the fifth day."
