    I'm 50/50 for each now, although I just shot my biggest this week at first light.
    In my experience I've seen more bucks chasing does in the a.m.

    Deer are consistently seen in the PM, but more does than bucks in the food source

    Morning by far. I dread shooting anything in the evening.

    I sure heard that,but,every deer we've taken in the last 5 years has been in the evening. Luckily,all were recovered,but,there's nothing worse than field dressing and dragging a deer out in the dark and pouring rain.

    I edited your post to reflect conditions on Wednesday evening

    As to the OPs inquiry i am personally about 50/50 over the last 40 years with a mix of both does and bucks, small and large and the last deer (#92 for me personally - so decent sample size) taken last Thursday with the crossbow on a nice sunny afternoon at 3 pm.

    We got 4 bucks this year. 3 were before 8am. I got my 10 pointer at 3:45pm in the pouring rain and 50k winds

    I seen another big buck at 9:30am the next day but didn't get a shot.

    Out of the last 6 bucks I've shot, 4 were 3pm or later

    probably 90% of my deer are AM shot within 3 hours of legal. I really don't like evening hunts for the reasons above, tracking and prepping. Only PM hunts are late season when I'm getting desperate to fill a tag, but those have all ended well.

    This season all our deer were shot in the a.m in the first hour after legal.

    Afternoon hunts were not productive at all..m
