Question
I bowhunt on a small 6 acre property in st louis county and I have a few trail cameras and I have been getting a lot of big bucks on trail camera but they are mainly coming at night and I wanted some tips for next season for getting the bigger bucks to come during the day during legal shooting hours

 

Johnny,

Deer avoid areas they associate with danger during daylight hours. You may need a bit better scent control, better approach to your stand/blind, etc., so the bucks don't associate that area with danger during daylight hours.

It may be the bucks only use that area after dark as it may be a ways from where they are bedding.

Enjoy creation,
