Default What To Do, What To Do?

I think one reason I'm having problems with Bow Hunting is my attention span isn't the best. I'm used to doing some walking when deer hunting, so after about an hour of sitting still I often find myself bored.
What little things do you bring to the blind/stand when you hunt? I heard Michael Waddell brings Handheld Yahtzee with him, but what other little things are out there to keep you busy?

I play games on my cell phone in silent mode, Bullmoose usually brings his PSP along and plays that.

I noticed my ADD kicking in pretty hard too.

I took videos, played solitare and bejeweled, sent text messages, tried to get on the web. I tried to count the dark green spots in the camo on my bow.

OH!! You could try telekenesis!

I was the same way when I first started stand hunting. Do whatever you have to but make yourself stay in that stand. What worked for me was telling myself if I got down and started walking I jumped deer which ran off and I'd here shots in the direction they ran. That was enough for me I was just pushing bucks to other hunters.

Cooner, another tip is to not consume too much Caffiene prior to your hunting time. It may help keep ya awake, but it'll also make ya ansty or nervous.

I'm surprised no one has said anything about bringing a wireless laptop computer along with them. Just think, you could keep everyone posted on how your hunt is going while we are at home reading minute by minute details.
