Question by hubs731. Uploaded on October 25, 2009
If it is cold the deer will move in the morning, it really depends on what the weather is doing as to when the deer will move. I have killed deer in the morning, afternoon and evening.
I usally don't see alot at first light, but when 10 o'clock rolls on thats when I start seeing more bucks. Holds more true during the rut. I do see deer from sun up till sundown. I will also depend on your stand location. Are by the feeding area, bedding area so on. Good luck
hubs, I feel exactly the same way, i rarely see deer in the morning, but quite often have better luck in the evenings. But like kyle said, a lot of people around here have killed bucks around 10 or 11 during the rut. i havent had that luck.... yet.
What did you do? LOL
Not the way this works cowboy!! Repeated the post 90 some times and giving yourself +s NOPE!!!!
Filing a complaint to F&S!!!!
i think its a sever probem kyle not his doing
I never thought of that, I was wondering why so have -s and +s If so I apolagize if thats the case buckhtuntr.
wow dont know what happened to buckhunter but my thought on the subject is that that you will see deer in the evening but no big bucks until its too late to shoot i say stick to the mornings for the big ones. that has been my experience
Wierd ... I have seen deer at both times, But i do seem to see more in the afternoons
Around here during deer season its bitterly cold(-10to-20C')causing deer to move and feed all day. During the opening week I try to hunt all day when possible.
MAN WHAT THE HECK!!! WELL TO GIVE YOU A DIFFERENT ANSWER DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHER HUNDRED LOL!LOL! I LIKE HUNTING IN THE EVENINGS IN THE EARLY SEASON THE REASON IS DOWN HERE IN THE SOUTH ITS STILL WARM IN THE
MORNING THE DEER ARE USALLY ALREADY ON BED BY DAY BREAK YOU MIGHT GET LUCKY AND CATCH ONE GOING TO BED BUT IT SEEMS TO BE BETTER IN THE EVENINGS BECAUSE ITS
BEEN WARM ALL DAY AND THEY GET UP TO HEAD FOR THIER
WATER HOLE BEFORE HEADING FOR THIER AFTERNOON SNACK
WHEN GUN SEASON COMES IN ITS A BIT COOLER SO THE DEER
TEND TO MOVE BETTER IN THE MORNINGS AND AS THE RUT GETS CLOSER THERE SEEMS TO BE NO CHANGE ACCEPT THEY MOVE MORE AND LONGER PERIODS FROM EARLY MORNING ON UP
TO MID DAY AND DONT GET ME WRONG WHEN THE RUTS ON THERES NO CALENDER OR TIME TABLE OR LUNAR TABLE THAT
CAN TELL YOU WHEN A MATURE BUCK IS MOVING HE WILL MOVE
ALL TIMES OF THE DAY NO MATTER WHAT THE WEATHER IS HE'S NOT THINKING WITH HIS BRAIN IF YOU KNOW WHAT I
MEAN BUT IN MY EXSPERIENCE WHEN ITS COOLER I USEALLY
SEE MORE DEER IN THE MORNINGS GOOD LUCK HAPPY HUNTING!
The moon tells me when to hunt,whether it be a waxing cresent or a full waxing.like this morning i haven't went out yet because it isn't time.another hour and a half and i'll be there!
i'll take mornings over eves any day.
from my experience mornings have proven much more productive tan the afternoons.
Depends. I have morning spots and evening spots. If the wind is right either can be good.
Looks like buckhuntr (no relation) was a little trigger happy with the enter button. LMAO!!!
I see most of my deer in the afternoon during the early season and bow season, then rifle hunting comes and I see all my deer in the first couple hours then not again.
I always see more in the morning.
I see larger bucks in the morning mostly!
I usually see the most action early in the morning. It all depends on the weather though.
I feel the same way all my action is from 3 til dark
While I have seen deer in the morning, I agree with you about the last hour of daylight. I not only seem to see more deer in the afternoon, I seem to see more bucks then also. Of course maybe I see more deer in the afternoon because I tend to fall asleep in morning?
Was gonna say up here we get alot of movement in the early hours. Evenings have their spot too. best is around a food source.
I've shot most of my deer in the morning.
I'm sorry guys, I've been scared to post, because i dont know if it was my computer was messed up or not, i didnt want to get banned.
afternoon hunting on a foodplot
For bow in the afternoon. For gun in the morning.
Morning during the rut when the bucks are searching between the feeding and bedding areas used by does. Evening earlier in the season when hunting a food pattern.
it all depends on the weather
i really haven't had any luck either time
I'm probably at 50/50. Killed as many in the morning as at night. But i think i've seen more in the morning.
The best two times for hunting is right after sun up, and right before sundown.
Depends on the day and the weather
Both I usualy see more deer at dusk, but I shot all the Bucks Ive ever killed in the morning.not going in the morning is a big miss IMO.
i prefer morning, just a personal thing
Afternoon in the early season, morning during the run, morning or afternoon in late season
morning works best for me
I think it depends what "attraction" you are hunting. You can catch rutting bucks returning to their beds first thing in the morning. On public land, all the guys heading in and out of their stands at luch time stir the deer up. Of course, evening is always a hot time over bait.
I prefer morning personally
I was seeing more action in the morning this early season.. But seems like I've seen more in the evening lately.. I think it's cause during the early season we had a cold front..
I will always prefer am over pm. I almost always see more deer in the morning. I feel like coming to your stand while its still dark disturbs deer less than when you come during the late afternoon/daylight.
Afternoon, in the morning I scare them out when I walk in.
I have gotten all my deer in late morning, bucks and does.
I Have seen deer where i hunt both morning and evening. Weather plays a big part i feel. I do see more in the evening but i enjoy both morning and evening hunts.
It depends where you are at but i prefer the afternoon hunt.
