you've got the best time for it. Wish I lived that close to my area. I've seen guys come in 45 min before end of shooting time and score. But they live real close by.

I have taken two hour power naps but I much prefer a power hunt, I did have one yesterday in my public spot and saw nothing till I pulled out of the parking lot. A small eight walked across the road into the woods toward my stand area. Oh well, deer get smart and know when it's safe but perhaps very soon he will get caught up in the breeding and slip up.

I do this whenever I have to. Gotta be out there if you're gonna shoot something.

 

I actually have spots closer to home that are almost specifically for this purpose. Thing I always worry about is messing someone else up. I always try to avoid that, but I hunt all public land, so sometimes it happens. I hate when I've spent all day in a tree to have someone come crashing in at the last minute. So I try not to be that guy, but I'm sure I've done it by mistake more than once over all the years. I always feel bad whenever I realize I've come up on someone else....

 

But...killing a deer can happen so fast and even after crazy stuff you'd think would ruin a hunt, so it's usually worth a try.

“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

I do those short hunts all the time. I hunt at least 2-3 times a week like that. It pays off. Good luck
