I set my trail cams up at two relatively-close locations over a two-week period... one at a hardwoods ridge peak and the other at a lowlands, wetlands edge.  To surmise after sorting through nearly a 100 photos, the ridge-top appeared to be where the most action was for both bucks and does for this time of the season.  First two pics are the lowlands, the next two are the ridge-top  Arrow

If you have acorns this time of year that's where I would be. Looks like some nice freezer fillers.

I'd forget about the nocturnal buck and hunt the place where one showed in the daytime.

I would be hunting the food sources this time of year. They are putting on the fat for the chase and winter.

None of my recent photos showed bucks during daylight hours...all nocturnal.   I won't bother chasing males until the rut when they visit daylight.   I'll be concentrating now on finding and monitoring scrapes that are maintained.   I typically find 20 to 30 scrapes every year, and of those I will focus on 2 or 3 to hunt over, and will always favor the ones that are maintained mid-day.

"None of my recent photos showed bucks during daylight hours...all nocturnal. "


The one above is in semi-daylight @ 6:52 PM. Is it already dark up there at that time?

That ridge has heavy tree canopy.  Apparently it was just dark enough to trigger the flash.
