I agree with everything you said about morning hunting! Although, I would like to recommend evening hunting as well. Alot of times that's when I see the most deer- especially this time of year. Now granted, I live in Missouri, so it may be a little warmer/cooler where you're at. I often see many deer right as the sun is going down and up until 15-30 min after sunset...
Good luck, sounds like you got the hunting BUG!
JESUS is LORD!
