  • I know that when bow hunting for deer in the early season in the evening, I need to set up on a path from bedding to food source

    I know that when bow hunting for deer in the early season in the evening, I need to set up on a path from bedding to food source. I have been setting up 50 yards from a corn field. But where should I set up for morning when the deer are moving back to their beds? I've tried setting up in the same spot as my evening stand but have bumped deer who are feeding in the field. Any suggestions?

    The evening choice of your location is usually considered a starting point on the ritual feeding pattern of sundown movement after bedding down for hours beforehand.In the morning I would try and set up with more distance between you and the feeding area-really fifty yards is not much distance when it comes to the whitetail.Take a second look at your hunting area and if you have the option to extend your distance from the cornfield along animal travel corridors that would give you enough of a buffer to effectively prepare for the morning hunt.

      on morning hunts i try to set up on bottlenecks leading from the fields into mast producing oaks or persimmon,sometimes during late morning the bedded deer willl feed about in these areas under cover .

          Of course whatever you are doing is bumping the deer. They either see, smell, or hear you. Are you approaching from upwind? Are you using a flashlight? Are you trying to climb a tree?

          I would slip in an hour earlier from downwind and hunt from the ground.
