If you believe that some of the mature bucks feel pressure and turn mostly nocturnal, then outside of a hot doe, your best time may be mid day.
Deer must feed (there is always an exception to the rule) every 4-6 hours. If the mature bucks feed before first light and then bed down, they must eat again around noon before they bed down for the remainder of the day. While this theory may not be applicable during all parts of the season, you can see why staying in the stand as long as possible has it's advantages.

I agree with you guys...favorite hunters are the guys that are out for 4 hours and then head back to the truck. Wish I wasn't one of them but I always have so much other crap going on that I am. Whenver possible I try to stay on stand all day long.

Well, since I've got a broken back, severe nerve and muscle damage to my upper body and legs, and failed complete knee surgery: I can only hunt from my ground blinds. I will stay out all day early season, morning and afternoon during cold weather. I look up at my tree stands and dream of the days of old! :(

Sorry to hear that BBM. I'm glad to hear you're still out there in the face of all that adversity. Best of luck to your health and hunts.
