    I just had a guy I work with say to me "daylight savings time coming, that will get the bucks on their feet". I looked at him with a puzzled look. He says, "gets lighter earlier so they get are moving later and get back to their beds later in daylight"

    Well unless the deer checks the watch around his hoof I don't thing he will really notice at all.

    Anyone ever hear something like that?

    To a deer with no relation to time it's just another day. No change. Am I missing something here?

    My girlfriend, God bless her heart, asked me if deer could tell time.... I just told her that they know when it's time to eat, screw and sleep, well, maybe not to the minute, but they can tell time lol

    You guys are gonna laugh, but where I hunt there actually is some truth to it. Where I hunt deer feed mainly in neighborhoods. Often the deer don't leave the neighborhood and head back into the woods until people start to stir, walking dogs, leaving for work, waiting for the school bus, ect. It's the human activity that sends them back to the bedding areas more so than it is the daylight. So yes, I notice I see deer later because they are able to feed into the daylight a bit longer before they are disturbed by people.

    Only thing i have noticed about daylight savings time is how it affects my kids sleep/behavior! I hate daylight savings and wish they would get rid of it all together

    I doubt that's what the guy in the OP was referring to, but that actually makes sense.
