Here's a good picture of 2 bucks testing each other out.

Red when was that pic taken. My girlfriend and I sat in our stands scouting on Sunday morning and heard two big bucks sparring in the bean field in front of us but it was about 615 and we couldn't really see anything. We ended up seeing two giants at about 710 and the two other bucks that were sparring were still doing so at the other end of the bean field. Just curious as to what time that pic was taken.

This pic was taken at 6:40am on 9/18.
The other pics I posted under "sparring bucks" were taken 9/8 between 7pm and 8 pm.

Those time frames seem to be the magic numbers. From what I have learned by observing from my hunts is that I have most always seen deer between the hours of 6:30 am - 9:30 am and from 3:00 pm till dark.
Some days I have went and seen nothing at all.

On our place right now the deal seems to be in the morning. We have only seen bucks in the AM so far. I plan on sitting this evening and seeing what is going on. Its raining north of us as I type this and that rain is moving south towards me and should be on top of me by the time I hit the stand.

Fortunately I have this camera in a great spot. I've had pictures of deer in this spot anytime of the day. However, that will change once the season progresses, but they will be close by Big smile
When I first put a camera in this area I didn't get one picture. I moved it about 50 yds and instantly started getting pics. I went from thinking the spot didn't hold a deer to seeing alot of good activity.

Thanks Racks. My girlfriend and I saw a giant Saturday morning just moseying along up the corn edge. He grunted several times so I grunted back at him and never even looked up. I know that there are at least 4 shooter bucks on my place. I haven't seen any of them other then that one (other then camera pics) . My girlfriend and I sat last Sunday (the day before season) just to scout it out and we saw that same giant we saw Saturday and another 7 x 7. There were two bucks sparring out in the beans too at 700 am. There was a full moon that night and the bucks were really moving that morning. Haven't seen much since then but does. I hope they start moving again.
