Out of curiosity, when do you consider it “too late” to go hunting in the evening? A lot of people have jobs that don’t allow them to hunt during the work week and are limited to only hunting weekends. If everything works out right and I can leave work 15-30 minutes early, then I can get in my stand by 6p.m. If I know I cannot make it to my stand by 6p.m. then I won’t go hunting. Instead, I’ll go home and wish I was in the stand and keep thinking this evening would have been the evening that big mature Tn. bruiser walks by and gives me that broad shot at 15 yards. Out of curiosity, when do you consider it too late to go hunting during this time of year (before time goes back)?

This early in the year I usually try to be in my stand by 5.No later.Once the time falls back I get to my stand at 3pm for evening hunts.

My mentality has always been that if I show up past 6 then I risk the chance of spooking deer or educating that big buck that might be making his way to feed for the night. However, who is to say that the deer won’t start moving later or earlier that day. I guess it is the chance we take, just like walking to my stand 1hr before daylight, deer might be hanging around my stand at that time or that big buck may be making his way to his bedding area during that time. That’s why I love deer hunting, it’s unpredictable!
