    All the time, especially when the sun shines on the high seat, cant beat 10 mins shut eye, only problem is when you have 40 winks sat against a tree, and wake to see several ticks running around on your trousers

    Sat under a tree, dog curled up at the side of me, rifle across my legs & giving it increasingly longer blinks. Next thing I feel the dog jump up, open my eyes to see a nice roe buck turn look at me and disappear into the woods at only 40 yards. The look on the dogs face said it all, just a good job the dog couldn't speak or I'd have got a right slagging off

    I fell asleep leaning on a tree in the Sangre de Christo mountains in northern New Mexico and woke to a 4 point buck standing 60 yards away. Propped my .44 pistol and dropped him. Best nap I ever had.~Muir

    Not while waiting for deer but have done many a time in the early hours night-watching for poachers.
    Woke up one night covered in a light sprinkling of snow and 2 hours later on after deciding just to wait a couple more minutes

    I've always thought high seats should be fitted with seat belts for just this reason.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.
