Default Who's going hunting in the snow ?

Ain't got much work but it don't look like I'll be hanging gutters tomorrow anyways. Guess I'll be hunting these city deer. I hate a cold rain so if it stays frozen, I'm going.
May not need my trail dog. Hopefully I'll turn the snow red ! I hunted water oaks this afternoon, had a 6 point walk right under me and a UFO came by at climb down time.
They were moving in preparation for the weather. We've got about 2 in so far ? I'm on the Henry/Dekalb line. How about y'all ????

Seriously considering going tomorrow. I'm in Forsyth County. We have about 2 inches as well. It started snowing here around 10:30

You got any snow camo Lee? I don't and would stick out like a sore thumb! The deer would be giggling at me as they passed by me at 40 yds!

If I can get over to my area, yes. Most likely after all the roads have cleared...a dead deer and no way to get to the Processor wouldn't be good (which is even further North).

The snow will be around a few days...we got time.

I would, but considering I have a 2hr drive south to Talbot to get to my land, don't think I would make it.

Streets were bad here. I wimped out and stayed by the heater.
Looks like its going to be here for several days. The woods ain't melting, even the streets are refreezing. I ain't missed it !
The snows got anything eatable on the ground covered up. I'm betting on privet hedge to fill a tag. What you guys think ?

I'm going in the morning for sure. We still have a lot of snow on the ground and I'm hoping to make a pretty blood trail.

Moved around 8:30 -10:30 am in Paulding. I scouted some WMA woods near my house (walking distance) since season is out. Nothing like snow to pattern late season trails and food sources. Found many tracks near big rocks covered in honey suckle vines, also beding ares in thick cover near creeks eating anything within reach that was green. I walked in around 8 and when I walked out around 10:45 there was a fresh trail crossing my foot prints where I walked in.

I hunted this afternoon. It was windy and cold. I got the cards from my trail cams and didn't see any fresh tracks in the snow. I did see a few tracks in the back of the property near the privet hedge thickets. On stand I saw 2 deer. A doe was being pushed around by a small buck. She didn't come close enough. They were by those tracks. Should've set up there. Got home and checked the cards. Got that buck I've been chasing just before the snow. (Left center, going away.) He was going from the front to the privet thickets in the back of the property. Just after I was coming out a different trail. Hes slick, only moving after shooting hrs. Nothing different about that though.
Every year near the end of the season we pull off a few deer drives. It really screws up the property. Basically runs everything off. It's not fit to stand hunt after that. We usually get a shot at a good one on the first day. (65% chance) After that it goes down hill, by the 3rd dive, no sightings. Theres a long recovery time so I'm waiting to the last week. I'll stand hunt until then but that may be my only hope.
