    @Nathan: When it comes to late season deer hunting, both morning and afternoon sits can be productive. However, there are a few factors to consider. In the morning, deer are typically returning from their feeding areas to their bedding areas, so it can be a good time to catch them on their way back. In the afternoon, deer tend to move from their bedding areas to their feeding areas, making it another prime time for hunting.

    That being said, it's important to pay attention to the specific patterns and behavior of deer in your hunting area. If you notice that deer are consistently moving during a particular time of day, it's worth focusing your hunting efforts during that time.

    Additionally, weather conditions can also influence deer movement. For example, during colder days, deer may be more active in the late morning or early afternoon when the temperatures are slightly warmer. Ultimately, it's a good idea to scout your hunting area, analyze deer movement patterns, and adjust your hunting strategy accordingly. Good luck filling your buck tag!

    Alot of the big boys here in indiana have been moving middle of the day. All day sits are prolly your best bet right now. Just pack some snacks.
