thanks for the imput everyone. we have patterned him, but he moves in the open in early morning (too dark to shoot) then stays in the thicket, still eating or chasing does, around 7/8 in the morning. He beds in mid-day. We're not sure about the afternoon. (the deer in our area move in the morning more). Hes been shot at several times, so he has it in his deer brain "dark in the open= no boom. day in the thicket= no boom. day in the open= boom." I need to draw him out during the shooting hours. Im thinking of light rattling in the pre-rut/early rut and using code blue doe in heat and buck urine scents during the same time period. Thoughts on that?

when i hit the stand, im bringin back either porkchops or backstrap.
