Lately I have been hunting early mornings as usual. I have seen some movement and have had some sucess but, it seems on cold days I see more deer on the way home from work right before dark than on my morning hunts.

I see the most when I am not in the woods. True. For in the woods I have seen a fifty fifty split on deer, but I see more in the morning heading across fields and cuts and more at night going to thickets and other places of cover.

Always had better luck in the morning. It seems like I get too hot hunting in the evening.

I'm with you. I much prefer to hunt and kill a deer in the morning.

Without a doubt evenings. All of my biggest bucks were killed right near last light. Deer sightings in general are much higher during late afternoon to early evening. Morning hunts are ok but nothing like the afternoons.
I've been hunting all morning and only seen 8 deer. 2 bucks, the better of the 2 was a 120 8 pointer. He'll be a good one in a couple years, 2.5 yo right now.

I do better in the morning... but now I notice I will give up an evening hunt because of this. Now I don't hunt as many evenings and this may be contributing.

AM by virtue of the fact that 95% of my hunting is AM. I will have to say that I believe that per ratio of AM versus PM hunts that bigger bucks are seen or taken in the PM.

I certainly see more deer and over a longer period of time in the mornings. See deer from daylight to 11 a lot of times. Afternoons its mostly right before dark. But most of my buck kills are afternoon hunts.

If you kill in the morning, chances are you wont hunt the evening, therefore skewing your opinion about sucessful evening hunting, or am I wrong?

I shoot more bucks in the pm with my bow...and by far more and bigger bucks in the am with my gun. I rarely hunt gun in the evening any more or bow in the morning

I see more in the morning. But it's not a fair assessment. I love morning hunts I wake up and my mind is clear and I can focus on hunting. In the pm I can't seem to clear my mind of the daily grind enough to concentrate as much as I need to.

AM has always been the most productive but never early in the morning. 8-10:00am is when all of my kills have been. I have never killed one on an evening hunt. I'd like to though.

I just finished updating my kill stats. I don't have a large sample size (roughly 50 deer) but two-thirds of them have been in the am. I'm sure that's skewed a bit by the places I like to sit, and by the fact that I seldom hunt the afternoon if I've killed something in the morning.
