So as the title states when did you take your biggest or what time frame have you taken the most deer? At work I am not allowed to take vacation from Oct 22-Jan 10 so I try to hunt as much as I can in the early season. I'll still get a day or two off after Oct 22nd and even though I haven't shot much after those dates, my cameras usually start showing a lot of bucks I've never seen before starting around Halloween.

So what dates have been the best for you for hunting?

My greatest success has always correlated with the rut and post rut. My largest bucks were taken post rut when they came to corn and presented shot opportunity.

Mid to late December is the rut on my lease, the bucks run around crazy.

Around my area the bucks seem to really start moving around the 2nd week of Nov. That is when I've always seem my most action. Rattled in a nice 10 pt and killed it last yr.

I've always had my best luck between Christmas and New Years. Got 5 nephews that hunt my place, I concentrate on getting them a deer or two in their freezers before I even get serious about it. They're usually done by Thanksgiving and more into watching football than hunting. I give the place a few weeks to quiet down then get after it hard solo.

Best deer I've killed was within the first 30 minutes of light on Opening Morning of gun season 2 years ago here in Callahan county. Best bet is to hunt as often as possible because you just never know!

Mid November seems to be the time I take most of my decent bucks. I hunt in northeast Texas and that seems to be the peak of the rut.

chef 90% of all my deer have been taken between 11:00am - 2:20 pm. While I have tons of activity at dawn, I like to wait to see what else passes by the diner. Don't get me wrong, I'll shoot a nice buck if it comes to the table. I've found the afternoon feeding really is a good time while other hunters are either going back to camp for lunch or fixing something they will kick the deer up and many time stop by for a meal. clap
I take my lunch and stay from dawn to dusk everyday during hunting season. grill

Never taken any of my deer while sitting at the house or at work. The more you hunt the higher your chances are for success. I have killed deer everyday of the season. The key to success that particular successful day was that I was hunting and the deer were moving. Hunting in archery or early general season before the rut is really good for patterning bucks still on feed. Pre-rut is great to rattle or catch bucks moving around in their territory checking for does. The rut is great if you have the does. Post-rut is really good to rattle to catch a rut crazed buck still looking for a doe or bucks moving back to feed in bad weather. There is no bad time to hunt, just bad if you catch the day the deer aren't moving. Early season I would set up as many TC as you have on rubs, scrapes, natural food sources, trails around feeders or WATER. Water being the key early season location. Let those TC do your preseason scouting so you know where to concentrate your limited days at. Good luck.

My 3 biggest were all taken during bad weather/high wind when other hunters would not be out there. Rut usually few days before Thanksgiving is exciting. I just go whenever work/family allows me to get away and then I hunt long and hard the whole time. I can sit and rest back home. I'm usually first out and last back and camp and often pack water/meal make full days in the field.
