I have quite a herd that migrates to and from the pines to the winter wheat and or corn stubble.
I also have seen more of them lately and they do come out all during the day. I am off on Thursdays, the deer are not pressured during the week by the 'yote hunters, so I tend to see more of them during the weekdays, usually from noonish til 3ish, then again an hour before dark. Not a buck in the bunch. And I do mean "bunch"! We have around 250 deer that yard up near my home every winter, that is why I refer to them as "the herd".
Yesterday, I also saw about 150 turkeys roaming through the corn field behind the house. Scoped them and saw a few nice long beards, but I know from previous experience that come seasons opener, they will be on someone elses property. Grrrrr!
Hunting the Michigan Thumbs agricultural mecca...farm country bucks taste the best.
