We got a couple of shots of nice bucks during daylight, around 8 AM, if I remember correctly. At this time of the year, many are still staying mostly nocturnal, but give it another month and those bucks will start looking and chasing. They'll forget all about checking their wristwatches then!!

If you check out some of the trail cam pics I posted over the past month or so you will see quite a few good bucks during the day.

Now though it seems like they are changing to more night time movement. It seems like they know bow season open.

Son has a nice 9pt showing up at 8pm in S. Ohio. We've had bucks in PA stay nocturnal right up to the rut and helps if a cold front moves in. I like those misty cool dark mornings to catch a buck scent checking his scrapes or mine.

very, very, very ,very ,very, very, very, very, very, very FEW!

Most of the bucks I've been seeing here in MO have been between 12am and 4am. It's just so dry here they aren't exerting that extra energy to get up and wander. They are staying bedded for longer. They also aren't attacking the salt licks or mineral licks b/c they know they have to drink water afterwards and there's no water in ditches or creeks or many of the streams for that matter. Once the rain starts a normal pattern again (hopefully soon) I'm expecting to see more deer out and about. PLUS, we're having unseasonably warm weather, highs in the 80's and lows in 50's for the past 3 weeks. Getting tired of the warmth.
