I prefer mornings... nothing in the world more frustrating than watching a deer and not having it come into range before the light goes at sunset.

When I am out, usually I am out all day, which includes hunting them in the day. I prefer taking one in the morning so can I have the rest of the day for whatever. I am not fond of breaking down anything at night.

I prefer mornings, generally find them more productive. I also like having more daylight to deal with any tracking or dragging. This time of year though, anytime is a good time to be out there with all those horny buggers trolling around.

The bad part about mornings is getting out of a warm bed and driving off in the dark to your walk in the dark. When I hunt evenings I usually leave my spot before dead dark unless I’m close to my car. Tagged one on the way out a few years back that I wouldn't have seen if I’d stuck to my spot ‘til the bitter end.

Back when my hunting time was limited and I had to travel to where I hunted, I used to stick all day, though that seldom seemed to pay off. Half days are “just right” nowadays.

I enjoy both, but there is just something special about being in the woods when its dark, then hear everything start to wake up and move at first light. If your in the right spot it seems like the woods are coming alive. Especially when Bow hunting. You don't have the problem of a late shot just before dark, then dealing with a blood trail in the dark.

Same. Once I can't see to shoot, I get down, even if there's still a few minutes of legal time left. No sense spooking up stuff you can't see anyway. I generally sit about 3-4 hours in the morning, go home for a few hours to eat and tak a little nap, then go back out a few hours in the afternoon until dark.

I like mornings best, as I like watching everything come to life as the sun rises. I can't say one is more productive than the other though. I've killed quite a few big bucks in the middle of the day.

I hunt dawn to dark so no real difference to me.

I would say I tend to be a bit more "excited and on optimistic" in the late afternoon even tho I shoot most deer 10am-1400.

I do enjoy watching the woods come to like in the am tho.

Morning and midday. I don't hunt in the evenings for deer.

As some posted ^ ^ ^
I sure don't like having to dress an animal
at night time, much less having to track
one if need be, transporting it, etc.

The ones I've killed right off the bat first
thing first day were never disappointing
for me even though some have told me
that it was a shame to kill one right away
and something "better " might have come
around later in the season

I prefer mornings because of the joy of watching God's creation wake up. Plus I've killed.more bucks in the AM - but 10:00 to 2:00 has been pretty good to me in PA because of the lunch crowd. I rarely go back to camp during the day......
