15 minutes after daylight in the morning and about 20-30 minutes before sundown in the evenings. Same as before just a bit different with shorter days now since the last time I reset them 3 weeks ago now. Still run the road feeder before I hunt everytime I go out and on days I won't hunt at all blinds.

7:30am and 4:45pm CST, every day of the year. Deer don't know 'bout the time change. I've had guys ask me "You're seeing bucks at your stand?!" and they're roaring to their feeders on their 4-wheelers in the middle of the day, every few days, changin' the time, changin' the time.

Yeah, I think we over think it. To the deer it's the same time as usual.

430 PM and 700 am all year.

Turned mine way down too, I still have a few hitting it, bucks,does and yearlings, so keep a little bit going. I have protein still in mixed with the corn, so not sure if they picking the pellets out or just feeding in general.

Changed times on most of the feeders at our place this weekend. 7:00 AM may seem a little late right now but it will be just right when our rut kicks in. 4:30 PM all year
If ducks had horns I'd probably be a duck hunter.
I am a horrible deer hunter. Probably the worst. Ever.

With corn piling up and advice from a ranch manager friend, we went to just morning feedings and at 7:00 AM. We had been running 2x a day up until this weekend. He suggested we just cast some corn under and around the feeder if we are hunting in the evening and if there is no corn on the ground. We'll see how that goes over the next few weeks. He also suggested we use molasses as an attractant, pour it straight on a log. We're trying that as well, wondering if the deer have a preference on brands - Log Cabin or Aunt Jemima food
