Hitting some public land in North Texas soon with a friend, and intend to stay out all day given the time of year and a long walk in/out. This is my first year deer hunting so I have little-to-no experience with the timing of deer movement throughout the day, during different times of the season.
For both increasing the amount of spots covered in a couple days, and mentally/physically refreshing during the day, I know that we'll be sitting different areas in the morning and evening.
In yall's experience, what would be the best hour-ish long window to be moving and setting up in the evening spots?

Deer move more in the morning and evenings depending on a lot of other factors such as feeding times, the rut, and weather, but mid day between 10 am and 2 pm you would probably be safe.
When it comes to deer hunting there is no set in stone times, but mid day is the general rule.
Stay stealthy when you move about or you can push deer out of the area, so pay attention to wind direction as well.
