one hour before sunrise gives the woods time to settle down from you walking in and getting set up.this way your ready the minute legal shooting time starts.you'll get a chance at the deer sneaking back into their beds and any latecomers to the woods will bump deer for ya
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
