How long before sunset do you think I need to be in my tree stand?

Question:
Thank you for the great electronic magazine. I only wish I had found you sooner! I’m planning on doing a lot of late season hunting this year. I have two questions: In past seasons I have done some, but never very seriously because it is so very cold up here where I hunt in Wisconsin. What suggestions can you offer to stay warm on stand? How long before sunset do you think I need to be in my tree stand?

Answer:
It is best to be in your stand a good hour and a half before you expect any movement to occur. This will allow you to get settled in and not risk bumping into any deer. This means you need to be out there at least three hours before sunset. Specialized clothing will allow you to stay warm for this length of time. First, pay particular attention to your hands and feet. One of the neatest products for your hands is the Hand Blanket from Ice Breaker. It is a large insulated muff that attaches around your waist and keeps your hands very warm. A good pair of warm pacs are a must.
