Night time deer

I recently moved and have been watching the deer patterns around my house. I have founds tons of signs. Tracks, trail cam pics, cleaned up all the dropped apples etc. and I see them running through the yard. Problem is it is always at night time.

I'm trying to come up with a strategy and where to but my archery stand next year but it seems I can never find them in the daylight.
I don't own enough property to do deer drives, only 5 acres. Need advice..

Re: Night time deer

Can you make your 5 acres a bedding area?? (IE cut/hinge trees ) If not..

Suggestion 2: You can do what most do and take the rut off and hunt everyday, they will come thru then.

Re: Night time deer

If you only own five acres and canít hunt the surrounding areas you might not ever have a lot of luck at getting deer on your property during daylight hours.

If you canít get between the bedding and feeding area your best bet is probably to plant some good food species and just hope they show up before dark.
