I usually take a break before the other hunters start coming back into the woods 1:00-1:30
Like HM stated during the Rut I try to stay all day
Like we try to pattern deer they will do the same I have seen a lot of deer when most hunters leave for lunch but try to get back before they do & start moving the deer around

I'll have to second the above. Seems to fit the times best for hunting here in Central Texas. Times do change a bit during the full moon though. Deer seem to be more active in the middle of the night and around mid-day. (but I can't hunt after dark)

About fell out my chair laughing when I read that line . . . that was a good one.

I don't leave until legal shooting hours are over. As another poster stated, I too have killed deer mid day.

Default One point about mid-day hunting

I have never seen a Deer mid-day that wasn't spooked on high alert. Someone or something had it moving and it wasn't comfortable staying where it was. That is why I try to hang in there all day, you never know when you may have a chance at a shot.
