Q:
Will deer take different paths in morning than at night? If so up to how far apart can they be? Do their paths change or vary day to day? Tomorow is the last day of the season and there aren't many hunters left out here, so there's not much pressure if that makes a difference.

Now during the rut, bucks will most likely be roaming not traveling the same trail at all. Try finding areas where doe bed or feed and setting up downwind of these areas. Be out and on stand an hour before daylight if posible and hunt all day. good luck and good hunting.

I've seen does use the same trails one day then use other trails on other days. If you have an Idea where deer may bed, thickets, swamps, brushy draws or feed, pastures, oak flats and food plots, you'll need to set up downwind ( 10-40 yrds with bow and 30-100 yards with gun) from where they may enter these areas. If they smell you, you wont see them, if you do it wont be for long.

Buck, I'll bet you do know where the does feed and bed. They're not on those trails to go to the post office. They're going from one to the other. Imagine yourself on the trail, are there mast crops or farmer fields that way, or is there a nasty clear-cut or swamp?

Deer will vary their travel lanes from day to day depending on weather, wind currents, activity in the area or just their moods. The only thing that is certai is that a deer will be a deer.

The trails are there because they re-use them. Without pressure, and unless they search for food elsewhere, they'll stay on track.
