    What are your experiences of older buck movement? I think I have seen and taken only one mature buck just at legal light in the morning. More seen around 8 or 9 AM in the morning. Every year I read about mid dat sitting. Especially during a full moon period. Never did much of that. I have a very comfortable stand this season. I might try mid day. Evenings I hate. Darkness increasing and you rush to follow blood. Some of you guys have alot more experience with older bucks than I. What times have you seem most. I know. From now forward. Be out there all day.

    I generally dont sit all day this early. Depends on what cameras are telling me. If there are mature bucks on the move in daylight/Midmorning then I will. Right now mostly nighttime and last light rut action. Its close. My best mature buck action has been first light, or between 10-1

    If your talking November, 9 am to 1 in the afternoon near bedding is dynamite. After that, move towards food.
    Edit to add, I always go in before light for morning hunts. It usually heats up mid morning but I wanna be there when it starts, not walking in.
