95% of harvests for rifle in the morning and 50/50 on archery harvests.......late afternoon during archery i have had excellent luck as bulls get out of their bed and are fired up for the evening festivities..they have often just come in on a string
By cutting a fresh track and following it my rifle success has been late morning or early afternoon. Without a doubt my archery success has been in the evenings. Just before dark when the herd gets up to move the bulls get excited and give away their position. I try to cover ground and get close for some challenge calling before the daylight fades.
