    I would have to say morning, but I also love the evening. Hard question now that I have to think about it. Actually, I say it is a tie.

    I've shot deer at morning, evening, and mid-day. I believe it's never a bad time as long as your in the stand.:biggrin1:

    I like to hunt in the evenings more. But watching the woods wake up around you is magical. I could get up every morrning and watch everything wake up.

    Enjoy vs Success?

    I enjoy hunting in the morning more. Usually it's colder and you don't break a sweat getting to the stand like you can in the PM's of early Oct.

    BUT... I have more success in the evenings? lol, Go figure!

    More success in the evening, but like getting them in the morning. It leaves more time and light to deal with them. Once it starts getting colder, I freeze in that hour after sun-up. Don't know why, it feels like the cold is coming right up through me. Never passed up a chance to go though. I'll take any time in the woods I can get.

    I just spent 13 hours in the woods this past Wednesday 10-03-07. I didn't have a shot at anything. I did see a few deer in a field too far out for a shot. (that was around 6:00 P.M.) It's really tough sitting all day this time of year. However... if you have the time and can handle it, why not? I have a picture of a very nice buck (120" - 130") on my trail camera that walked by at 9:45 A.M. on a sunny day (Sept. 12th 2007) You just never know. During the rut, I sit all day, every day. I have seen more numbers of deer in the mornings and evenings, but I have also seen more "trophy" deer in the middle of the day when most folks are home eating lunch or taking a nap etc. I guess it's a matter of how long you can and will sit. I know that you have to be comfortable (warm) and I read a book along with bringing snacks and water to keep me going. I'm not saying it's easy, but the season is too short - especially the rut, and I want to be in the woods as much as possible during that time. It's getting more difficult as I am 51 and I feel it in my knees etc. But as long as I'm able, I'll continue to do it. Good Luck To All! Jeff

    dawn to dusk

    Over the years I have killed deer at various times during the day. Staying out all day has paid off more than once for me.:wave:
