Some times it takes me awhile to get an elk from a stand. On several years I have used almost all of my season waiting in a stand before I finally got one or just ran out of time. One season I averaged ten hours per day in my stand and never missed a single day of the 30 day season. Crazier still, I was disappointed that I did not have just one more day. Let's hope that does not sound too much like an addiction, but I know I would have gotten one the next day. LOL I figure it takes on average 100 hours per season in my stand. That is about how long it takes me to kill an elk. I really don't like short, one or two day, hunts where I kill one right away. What are some other hunter's experiences like? How long does it take you to get er done?
