Odd, Sorry to hear Otis was slow. I went for the Military hunt last week and if I had doe tags for the Cape I could have filled atleast 3. Saw 5 deer total and 3 just stood there at 30 yards or less.

got onto 3 saturday afternoon. the crunchy snow kept them just far enough away until they crossed the frozen river at dark. hopefully it will warm up a little so it is not so loud.

How many guys are going out for blackpowder?

I do Muzzleloader season. My Buds that went today did well with a buck and a doe. Same area we shotgun hunted all season. The colder temps have them moving. Definitely crunchy conditions but closer to the coast it was bare ground. Good Luck everyone AND STAY SAFE.

Nice work Jofa. The deer have pretty much disappeared for me during the daylight hours.

Congrats JOFA :thumbsup: . Went yesterday, didnt see anything, very few old tracks in the remaining snow. Hoping for more snow to try tracking with a MZ.

I was out in the morning and saw absolutely nothing in a spot I almost always see something somewhere.

late that afternoon, i could see deer all over w the snowy background. my doe was dead 20 yards away and deer were still all over. I stayed late just watching them, all does and a young 8 pointer milling about.

I know we are past the shotgun time but I didnt want to start a new discussion.

I took thurs and friday off last week and landed back to back does to end the season with a full freezer adding to the big maine buck earlier this year. Time to put away the orange and break out the camo again. Got a new pair of waders for xmas that need breaking in.

Went coyote hunting yesterday evening and noticed a lot of deer tracks as well. All were tight to the houses. Didnt see any tracks deeper in the woods. No luck on the yotes either.

Funny you mentioned yotes Mike. Had one this morning in the cul de sac directly in front of the house. Took the street route all the way avoiding the deep snow, pretty cool. Probably looking for the cat that I witnessed taking a dump in the middle of the road yesterday. :lol3: Funny what some deep snow will do to some critters.
