Literally this. I like from 8am through 130pm. Regardless of weather conditions...Definitely morning in the rut. Late morning about 9 to 12 is my favorite time in the rut more specifically.
My thoughts exactly. Seems like the first few weeks the afternoon has a little longer movement period. Mornings in october seems like bucks get to their bedding area and not on their feet much after daylight. Once november comes i want to be in my stand as much as possible, but usually see more movement early then get a lull for a while. 10 to 2 is a great time when rut is on iv'e killed a lot of bucks including my best in that time frame.If I had to pick only one time of day to hunt it would be evenings in October and mornings in November.
