This is kinda like that lady that called that radio station complaining that the city should move the deer crossing sign because deer kept getting hit right there.

Default let me try help !

Let me try and help here. at no time of the year does my personal planet, which I like to call earth. does its rotation slow down one hour on 4th of november. and then again speed up one hour on the 11th of march. so to summarize the 4th of november isn't a 23 hour day, and march 11th isn't a 25 hour day.
Hope this helps.

They never came out any earlier or later. On my farm it seems most of the deer are nocturnal and I hardly ever see any in the morning and see most of my deer at night. So last year when it got darker earlier I just never saw anything. I shot my last deer of the season last year around Halloween.

They patterned you so they changed their time to be out and about...The key to seeing deer all season is to be able to keep from spooking them while hunting...

In another thread he mentioned he doesn't use climbers after a bad experience 15 years ago with one. After reading this thread I realized that there is no way possible that he has been hunting for 15 years.

I'll try to explain it easily here. The sunrise sunset time does not change. At all, other than the days getting a little shorter. The only thing that changes is our clock. So instead of saying "it's six o clock." we now say "It's five o clock." That is all that changes. The actual daylight does not change. Because deer do not have clocks, there is no way they could know about our time change. If you stopped seeing deer it was for some other reason. Us changing our clock has no effect on the deer movement. Hope that cleared it up.

Want in on a sneaky little secret? Now I don't mean to be tellin tales outta school... & the tactic I'ma gonna lerntcha bout is HIGHLY illegal onnacount its to affactive inall but this sounds like onea them timesa desperation my pappy auseta warned me bout inall.

The all pireful cekrit is ta turn YORN watch AHEAD 3 hours! Yep then thatll have that ol buck jesta goin bat & all crazy & he'll be FORCED to saunter all out in yorn fields when tha suns still highn ablazzin!

But now like I dun tolja, keep this cekrit completely onda down low ya unnerstan? Shoot why its so effective, dangerous & illegal that I'ma standin in my closet witda lights out while I'ma typin this post!

Like he said, turn your clock ahead a few hours so the deer come out earlier.
