I don't believe heading in any earlier is going to help your hunt at this point, If you're bumping him on the way in now
you could make it a lot worse if you go in while it's too dark.
If he hasn't been bumped out of there yet that tells me he isn't going anywhere, he's a crafty Buck and isn't about to
let you push him out of his home otherwise he'd be gone by now.
So I suggest heading in about 30 minutes before sunrise, that should be a good time to get you and your son settled
into the blind BUT I can't emphasis enough how important it is to be quiet, still and Descented. he'll get brave and show up I bet.

You guys are missing my point. He is going in through the valley. Valleys are the number 1# breeding and night time congregation areas for deer during the rut. He has to get there much earlier so to be able to circle up and around the area. If the deer hear him it gives them plenty of time to believe danger has left the area so to resume their activities. If he does not do this it will force the deer to bedding areas early where obviously he can not get a shot. But then again what do I know.

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
