Many folks have posted recommending bringing a book to read while sitting in the stand for long periods. Sounded like a good idea to me. After hearing good reviews from other hunters, I ordered "Finding Wounded Deer" by John Trout. It seemed like an appropriate book for such and I can always learn more about trailing a wounded deer. Well, It came in the mail the other day, so I opened it up to glance through. Big mistake! Before the day was over, I had read the book cover to cover. Now I got to find something else to read in the stand. I did learn a few things I had never considered before and highly recommend it to anyone who hunts large game.
