I enjoy evening hunitng the most. Like you said, it gives me something to look forward to while on stand. That last hour of daylight everything seems to come alive... I hunt both about equally. I always see more activity in the evenings, but I've taken more deer in the mornings.

This year we saw nothing in the morning and bunches in the evening, RIGHT at closing time (about 4:30).

Definitely evening.

I enjoy both (getting up early tends to be less appealing though ) but evenings seem to be more productive in my opinion just because normally i hunt field edges and they all tend to filter out to the feeding area. Mornings i hunt up high on the bluffs where they come to bed but...deer dont all bed in one area like they do feeding areas

I love talking to guys who hunt in a highly pressure WMA and bags 7-8 deer a season..I learned one thing from these guys that I have adopted....THEY HUNT ALL DAY..
Deer can appear at any given time...

Mine..40% at Morning
40% between 1-3:00
20% in the Evening

I love to hunt the morning, but I'm thinking I have seen more big bucks in the evening. Part of why I like mornings is getting up way before the crack of dawn and watching the sun rise. Maybe the best part of morning hunting is that should I be successful I have all day to process the meat. Besides I don't like tracking blood trails at night. And processing animals at night is usually a way for me to cut a finger or worst!

I have shot about the same number of deer in the morning as I have in the evening.

More activity in the evening before dark. only problem is finding the game if they take off after being shot.
