Does anyone else have deer coming in but only at night? Is there anything I can do to get deer coming during the day? I hunt in freestone county. I changed my feed time to only once a day in the morning thinking this would help but still just at night. I know season is almost over but looking at maybe for next year. This has been a problem last few years.

Good luck!!! My season is already over, (had to go back to work offshore), but ever since Thanksgiving week with a lot of pressure my deer have been nocturnal and there was nothing I could do to change it even though there was little pressure the following weeks!!!

Rainfall and hunting pressure have changed deer habits at this time of the year in my area. They have plenty to eat and are taking there time to get to feeders/plots now. They feed their way to the location then do not stay as long. Some are not hitting the same location everyday anymore either. If deer do not live on your lease/ranch then it might appear they are nocturnal but in reality they are just taking longer to get there.
