What time should I hunt

620 8
Need some advice. I am off Monday thanks to Columbus but since the wife works at night and I plan on taking my little girl to PreK I can’t hunt the normal morning/night. I was thinking after I drop my girl off 9:00am I would head into the woods and stay till 1:00 has anyone had any luck during this time, as it will be the first time I would be hunting during the mid day.

I was planning on scouting and hanging a stand on Sunday in some thicket in hopes on nailing a pre-rut buck

If you go back home you surely will see nothing.
Go when ever the urge strikes you never know, going in at 9:00 you may get set up just as someone else decides to leave and they push something your way.
Like graybeard says a lot of good deer have been taken between 10 and 2:00
JUST GO

I have a similar situation. Our season starts on Wednesday and I took the day off. However I will have to help get the kids off to school and the wife to work. I will then be getting in the stand around 7:30 - 8:00. It seems to have worked out pretty well because Tuesday is suppose to be a full moon. I will sit until I kill something or it gets dark. I believe that mid day hunting is sometimes the best hunting because so many people only hunt the first/last couple of hours of the day and there is not much pressure at midday.

boys you might be better off doing slow stocking around instead of stand setting right now during those hours at this time jmho

Anytime to be in the woods doing what you love to do is a good time.You cant get them sitting at home on the couch.My buddy shot a 136" 7 point at 12:35 last Saturday and it was 74 degrees.Ya just never know.Good Luck

Thanks everyone. I guess quality time with the wife will have to wait :) All year I been hunting off a grass field, but I will try my luck further in the woods in some heavy cover hoping to catch a buck chasing some does

No rules in this game and anytime in the stand is "good"time! Goodluck out there!
