Default how to handle this

When I get to the field I HAVE TO cross to get to my good spot for bowseason the deer are already out in the field, this is in the morning. What can I do? Get there more early? If I do that its going to need to be at about 3:30. Or should I just not even hunt there in the morning?

That's a tough call. I use to hunt a spot that as soon as I stepped off the home owners porch deer scattered in every direction all through the woods. I can say even though the amount of deer was consistent throughout the hunts the big boys were seen less and less.

If it were me I would still hunt it but not very often exspecially if you have other places. You may try to wait until the rut and go there at first light.

Good luck.

I would hunt it in the afternoon. Do you have another spot you can hunt in the morning? I was all pumped up to go this morning but the east wind is one I can't hunt in the mornings. I stayed home. It will be perfect for this evening though.

well heres what u do. set up into the woods a ways back from where they are feeding. Catch them when they are coming back right at daybreak and whack em. Simple as that

What you're doing isn't working. You know it's more counter productive than helpful. Duhhhhh... gee.... I think I'd make a change.

so lets say I go to the trouble getting out there so early at 3 am. Once I get there if I spook them off, what should I do? come back home or go on in the woods and get in my stand?

You can't get there early enough. You have to go in from a different direction. The only way around it would be if it were a HUGE field and you were willing to give up one side and walk in along it to the woods and then circle around to get behind the rest of it. Deer will be in the field, around the field, just off the field all night. You run them out your hunt is from that moment on based on luck. I've walked a half mile and more just to get behind a field from another direction on many occasions. You just have to look at what you got to aid in your secret sneak. Maybe it's a creek, a hill, a ditch and old logging road, access across a neighbors land....something... or just use it as an afternoon place. Ruining your nights sleep, waking the rest of the house and being sleepy all day is not the answer by sneaking in at 2 or 3. You'll be worn out and edgy by the time it's daylight. You'll be less alert and probably fidgit and move to much or.... you'll snore. None of the possibilities are worth it really.
