I have shot 4 deer so far and 2 have been from 9:20-10:30am, (buck and doe) and the other two were after 4:00pm. (again buck and doe.) I def. prefer evening hunts though, i don't know why but i see tons more deer during the last 3 hrs of sunlight than the first 9 hrs (or how ever long) of daylight before the last 3 hrs, (hope that made sense lol) given i'm not up in the morning on MANY hunts, i still go in the mornings but never really have any luck, the two deer i have shot in the morning also came on stateland on opening day gun lol. I love being out there when the sun goes down, it just seems to get em moving in my experience! But anytime in the woods is as good as gold to me!
Them Darned ol' deer.
