Thread: Stalking AM time?

  1. #1

    Stalking AM time?

    What time is first light starting to come in at? Have to be honest and say that I haven't been up before 7 since the wildfowling ended!


    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks in advance!
    Check www.timeanddate.com for your local sunrise times.

    I plan to be on-site about 75 minutes before this if I'm going to be in a high seat.

    Depends where you live mate!
    I use this site which will give you sunrise for where YOU live by entering your postcode. You can then subtract 1 hour form sunrise to give you first legal shot time.

    Its an interesting question. I shoot many of my deer well after dawn and that is dependant upon the area and the time of year; deer dont read books. Good luck when you go out.

    Thanks for that! I'm doing a bit of a scout tomorrow so thought I'd get there early and see if there's anything moving. Did see a dear at 9.30 today though so a lie in is tempting

    I was in a seat today around 30-40 minutes before first light, the later you leave it the more dodgy it is in all honesty! Get in position early and wrap up very warm!!

    Well I would say that if I was there 5.45/6 then that would have been fine,(so an extra half hour in bed would have been nice).

    saw a doe and last years buck with it. Was slightly beyond 200 yards and I decided not to take the shot,(the spooked before I could relocate and stalk in). Zapped a feral with the .22-250 at a similar distance after that so could have maybe taken the shot after all.


    ​cheers for all the replies!
