Two of them in camp, twelve empty bottles of South African wine in the trash can in the morning of their first hunting day. I don't know how late they stayed up drinking but they had a lot of misses. From what I've seen of this type, it seems like a lot of camp based deer hunters. They just want to get away from their wives and drink without hearing a bunch of crap.
100% Agree!.... As someone that used to guide whitetail hunts and has been in deer camps from Texas to Australia I find there are 2 kinds of deer hunters; there are deer hunters and people that simply go to deer camp for the novelty of it.
The later of the two rarely wake up in time for the morning hunt, but are usually more than happy to pour a drink while loading their rifle, before trying to climb into my truck with a drink in one hand and loaded rifle in the other for the evening hunt.
One such client I was guiding simply became incensed when I told him the 32oz insulated thermos that he had filled with a 50/50 mix of whiskey & diet coke would not be coming with us into the blind while hunting.
Now having said that - I keep an ice chest full stocked in the back of my truck with several kinds of beer, soda, water & various mixers; along with a bottle of my favorite whiskey underneath the rear seat for when the hunt is OVER..... Once the animal is down, gun unloaded and put away in a case I have absolutely no problem with pouring the first drink for the long drive back to camp.
