    Is there good trails, any sign of deer in the area? If not try moving to a different spot. If there is sign give it time. Patience is the key!

        You are not in the stand enough. I assume if you are in the stand for 2 hours in the am you are getting down around 9am. then getting in the stand aroud 4:30 or 5:00pm. Stay in stand till 11am then get in at 3:00 or 3:30, or stay in the stand all day. If I'm not in the stand all day I'm there for at least 3-4 hours at a time. I've gotten down at 11am and seen deer on the walk out lots of times. Deer don't just move right at dusk and right at dark. In fact, I believe that if they are moving in the middle of the night they are more likely to move in the middle of the day than early or late.

          If I could correctly answer that question I would not have frozen my ass off on numerous occasions without seeing a thing. The only thing I learned to do smarter was to dress like a bagman to stay warm and last in the stand. Perhaps cold is not an issue where you live. Where I am from, the severe cold often dictates how long you last. Sometimes the best part of the hunt is the warm cup of coffee in your hands.
