morning deer hunting?

Reply
I dont know to much about deer hunting but in freezing temps, do yall wait til around 9 or 10am before heading to the stand? I heard to do this bc the ground is still frozen and deer do not walk out yet. any truth to this?

I never have patterned this until this deer season. someone said when its real cold they dont move till later. well I noticed this year anything below around 40 or so, I didnt see a deer or I didnt see one till 8 or later

A couple weeks ago when we had the hard freezing temps for a few days strait I saw almost all of my deer at daylight. You could hear them crunching thru the frozen mud. Deer must eat so they must move. Plus during the rut I don't care what the conditions are they will be moving.

I am ALWAYS in my stand a first light. It might or might not be the prime time on a particular day but you can't kill them in bed. Hunt till 9 then more to another location if you want but hunt.
