Default Crossing the field

I just recently started Bow Hunting. I have a great stand for rifle hunting but had to get back in the property to hunt with a bow. I am a big guy and hunt from ground blinds. I have 2 setup. I have only hunted evenings because of a fear of bumping deer out by crossing the field before daylight, however I miss my morning hunts ( My favorite). Can I cross my field before daylight to make a morning hunt? how long before should I cross? any tips? I am about 40 yds from the back of the cut that looks like a V. on the South Side, Facing North.

is there a different way to enter so you don't have to enter the field? How far is it to go around?

Really cant " Go Around" ... If you look at the image, behind the wooded area is a neighboring homestead. every way I enter sends me across the field for a stretch. I can skirt the tree line but will have to cross the field at some point to get to the ground blinds. Should I just stick to evening Hunts on the parcel?

No. just scent control. before entering field try to make sure there are no deer in it so you don't spook them. Cross as quickly as you can. As long as you don't get them jumpy they will come back as soon as things settle down. Some places are only early or late areas. I hunt a location that if you morning hunt you mite as well sleep. 10yrs hunting that place and have never seen a deer before 2pm.good luck,keep the wind in ur face and knock down a big'un
