I hunt 2600 acres between Uvalde and Bracketville and for the first 2 weeks of bowseason I've hunted it 7 days. 3 last week 4 this week. Last week I had deer all over me. This week deer movement is horrible. Checked my game cams and from around 10 till 4 in morning my feeder is covered up in deer. Have 13 different bucks that are eating every night. Feeders timer is 7 am and 6 pm. Anyway to try and pull these deer out of their nocturnal mode? Am I feeding to much, hunting to much?

I always say it like this. Deer will be deer. 80-90% of the time, they move at night. Kinda like trout, 80% of the time, they eat sub-surface, the other 10-20% they eat on top. I don't thinks it's you, just lunar and weather conditions.

They are mammals and move at night. Period.

Good luck.
