Really depends on the stand. I have stands close to bedding area I try to be there early afternoon. Take my time and sneak in. Other stands close to field edges I know the deer will most likely not be around till the last hour of light. A spot like that where I can walk right to the tree and be quiet getting I'm I would have no issue showing up at 5 knowing the majority of the deer will not be in the area till 6 or later.What is the latest time you get into your afternoon spot tree stand or blind? Is 5oclock too late?
