I like mornings better than evenings since the deer are usually more relaxed and just mincing their way back to bedding areas. In the evenings they seem to be more alert and honed in on sounds and movement as they move to feeding spots. When the rut approaches….I like mid-day, between 10AM and about 3PM as the bucks tend to run amok at that time. Of course I can choose since I’m retired….after forty-seven years of working full time. )))). I will also add that I rarely hunt until it’s dark; too many times in the past I had to trail a deer after the sun had gone down. I much prefer daylight tracking….even short runs.
