As hunters, we have the misconception that mature bucks, for various reasons, "go" nocturnal. This isn't true. Mature bucks "ARE" nocturnal. Sometimes they just "go" during the daylight for various reasons.

I disagree with that. I feel the older a deer gets the closer he stays to his core area regardless of the rut. Now I believe they make short excursions or trips but that they don't travel 2-3 miles and stay gone fro days or weeks. I believe they return after 24-48hrs to there core area. And if there are enoughh does around then they don't have to go far. I killed a 9pt back in 2009 that was 4yrs old. I had seen that buck and hadc trail camera photos quite often of him. And he was a staple around my farm and I saw him at least 2-3 times a week including during the rut. The only year I. Had limited sightings was the year of the EHD. And I do believe he traveled a lot that year.. just my 2 cents. Good luck killing that buck!!

Wow! What a deer,I agree though,somewhere during daylight he gets up and moves around..but that's the million dollar question..where.

I had pics of a huge 8 in august, and havent been able to catch up to him. Either hunting the wrong area or the deer is on to me. Best bet is hunt a funnel like your saying, and catch him cruising in the next 3 weeks. Good luck.
