all are valid points.i have gone in an hour or so before first light to allow things to settle down before sunrise.it gets very cold i might add.i have also still hunted in to a spot hoping to bump em.I think this late into the game you need to go to the deer not sit and wait,they 'll just wait till dark.thats my 2 cents
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
