Late nighter,usually hit the hay at 1 or 2 a.m.
Only reason to rise early-trapping,hunting fishing or conventioning.

If my feet aren't wet,I must not be trapping.

Both. Not by choice. Lots of nights of 4hrs of sleep. During the week I'm usually up by 0530.
Today I went to sleep around 0400 woke up at 0830 and felt the day was already gone lol.

Here I am, in the fur shed. Just got the fire going and about to put up a few coons.
I've worked 3rd shift for the last 8 years. I'm a "late nighter".


When life gets me down..... you know hunting/trapping season is closed.

Both.
Never have slept much or for long.
3-4 hours is more than enough ,
I can sleep when i'm dead .
I like wandering around in the dark checking traps.

You know the saying early to bed early to rise. I am up at 5 every day.

I'm almost always in bed before 22:00 and wake up before 05:00. No alarm clock necessary...


Keep your boots dry and your powder too.

I remember when a fur check was reality.....now I'm just trapping for the love of it.

Best Regards,

JT

Early riser I had a coworker tell me once that I was the only person he ever knew that could get out of bed at 5:00 AM and be going a hundred miles an hour by 5:15 AM

Both, not really by choice. Because of a bad back, have to sleep in the recliner. 4 hours is usually a good night. Drinking coffee by 4am at the latest.
