I'm really curious to hear from some of you guys on this one. Have you killed more mature bucks on morning or evening hunts throughout your hunting career? Personally I've killed more bucks in the evening, but have killed a few during morning hunts as well. (I love deer hunting but have a hard time making an all day sit) So far this year though, morning sits have been far more productive. Hunting North of Hwy 90 in Medina County.

Varies for me depending on the area.. Iíve killed some good bucks in South Texas on evening hunts, but in the hill country and East Texas, Iíve killed more in the morning, so Iíd have to go with mornings.
Iíve probably killed more management bucks in the evening though.

Evening for me, but I don't really know that it matters that much. I have always liked evening hunts.

I was thinking about this exact question a few weeks ago. When have I taken my wall hangers. I have 5 that are hanging up right now.
3 were taken in the afternoon (1 was in Alabama)
2 were taken in the morning

Excluding my my Alabama buck - its 50/50 for me. But I would say most buck activity I've seen, outside of the rut, are in the evenings.

Evenings. The deer are on their feet and visible for a longer period of time.

same here...

also, depends on weather, moon, rut, etc...

hot spell we've had the last two weeks mornings have been much more productive for longer periods of time while evenings have been active right before dark...

Something else to consider.

If you hunt a smaller property whatever your first hunt is will probably be your best hunt. Our place is smaller and if we don't try to keep it quiet and activity down in the pasture then the deer sightings will be down for following hunts.
