    I have always killed my best bucks in the morning. I have never had the patience to sit all day, but my dad always killed his best bucks between 11 and 2, after going out before daylight and planning to sit all day.
    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh-

    Morning. Seems like they move longer in the morning, rather then just dumping out into a food plot right before dark.

    Evening.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    Evenings but may be because that is when I hunt the most. I will say that the big ones I get daytime pics of are 7:30am to 9:30am and then the same bucks at about 12:45pm very often on the same camera.

    Seems that it depends on cold fronts for mature deer . Small bucks seem to not be affected as much . The older I get the less I know .

    A friend and I were discussing this last night. Killed most of mine an hour or 2 before dark in the woods. With that said I rarely go in the mornings, like once a year.

    Time of day doesn’t really matter to me, depends on the moon.

    One thing that is for sure, of the past 20 mature deer I’ve kept record on, only 3 of them came when the pressure was below 30.00 but above 29.90.
    30.15 seems to be perfect.

    My biggest was killed at 7:50am in a heavy fog after a big front moved through. Most of my other bucks were late evening. In the evening they seem to be moving slower preparing for dark. Almost all I see in the mornings are moving quickly with a purpose.

    My biggest deer was killed early in the morning on October 10th, it was to early to see the pins on my bow and he was moving with a purpose. All my other big deer were in the evenings, some were almost pitch black dark and some were an hour or two before dark. Most of them had does on their mind.

    My favorite time to hunt is morning or afternoon just after an extended rain has just stopped. That said, my two best deer came in the morning. 6:45 AM and 8:55 AM
