    I slept in this morning and I have Christmas this afternoon so I'm on the stand now and have been for an hour. Has anyone had any luck with mid-day hunts Bc this is the first time I have hunted mid-day.

    I have. Weird feeling. I have got to stand at 10am and hunted to 2pm ( even til dark ). I have seen alot of deer that away. I spoke to a guy camp on Bayou Meto said all his deer were moving more from 10am-2pm.. Even after New Moon. I am still going to it myself and all have it planned out. I am off for 2 1/2 weeks.:thumb:... Good luck and let us know whatcha see.:up:

    Well I just got down due to the squirrel hunters and some guy running a chainsaw all within a 100 yards of me. I'm gonna go back and try again in the morning.

    That sucks.... Oh well... You tried.
     
  7. sorry to hear that. That sucks. As far as mid day movement goes we have been seeing movement between 10am - 3 pm. That is when most of the deer have been seen here lately. Good luck tomorrow.

    I've been seeing nothing while hunting morning and afternoon, but I have tons of trail cam pics from 11:30 - 1:30. Maybe I'll get the hint.:smack:

    Well tomorrow night is beginning of Full Moon.. So, I think Mid-day hunt may be best. According what I have been reading. That weekend I saw all the deer it started around 2pm until dark.

    Mid day can be good, I killed an 8 one day at 1 pm. Around noon today showed high movement for hunting forecast on the time2hunt app for Droid or iPhone.
