    lucky you guys, we 3 from 47 got skunked pretty bad. one of our hunters went back solo for two days. nothing during day, lots of activity during night. *sigh* looks like I will have to get a bow this year... maybe :/

    No luck in WMU76. Tag soup this year. Like many have mentioned, most of the trailcam pics were of deer movement in the late PM or very early AM.

    Yes but this time of year deer have their winter coats. In unusually hot weather they will be most active in the coolest part of the day which is night time usually. Rut is primarily triggered by daylight hours though.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    What TerryM said. Yes run is triggered by length of day. But deer movement is influenced by many things - temperature being one of them, hunter pressure is another, change of weather, particularly cold fronts moving through.

    I couldn't hunt this year, but our gang was shut out both weeks. the last time the week 1 gang was shut out was 1971.

    Just back from a week in 7b. We only saw 4, all huge bucks but couldnt connect. Lots of deer on the field cams, but all at night.
    Lots of fresh sign in the cuts and big timber, but they were definitely not moving in the daylight. It was also very warm for this time of the year. I can't ever remember weather as warm.
