    Over the years I also think in the late season they move better in the evening.

    I agree. Often times mornings they are already in their beds at first light and sit around till later in the morning or afternoon to get up to move.
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Been Looking at my trail cam pics trying to learn their patterns for late season and most of the time they hit the spot around 4-6a.m. and nothing really after that till afternoon.

    I also think it all depends on where food is available to them.
    Is there anything better than being in the woods?!

    South West Ohio (Cincinnati area) is about to get a nice warm up over about the next five days. couple high forties, couple mid to high fifties and I think sixty degree day come Saturday. My question is how will this affect their patterns after the colder weather we have experienced??? Will I see them out later in the mornings. After sunrise?? or out any earlier in the evening?? What are your experiences or thoughts???

    My personal opinion is that this "heat wave" we are about to get is going to kill the deer movement. they have their winter coats on now so i tend to believe this warm whether in the late season is very uncomfortable for them. also they don't need to take in as many calories to survive as when it's super cold so why should they waste energy trying to look for what little food is out there right now??? in my opinion i think we will notice less deer movement all together even at night until it cools back down... just my 2 cents... Deer have been making a fool of me since i started hunting and probably will until my last hunt so who knows what they are really going to do except for them... haha

    Been seeing alot of deer moving during the day this week so far... I think it was hortontoter that has said in a few different threads that mild sunny days in january tend to be good for deer movement. and so far this week that looks to be pretty correct... The temps haven't climbed enough yet to shut them down and it has been in the 20's at night but when we hit 60 i think things will be way different.
