Did you say Canada is often overlooked for hunting deer?

What time of year is your muzzle loader season? Ours here is in Dec after a month of rifle season. Better chance of tracking snow, but the deer have been chased for a month and the ruts pretty much over. Makes it a lot tougher.

The season starts the first week of December,,and the rifle hunt is the first 2 weeks of November so they get a bit of a rest and the muzzleloader is only a week long but I have heard there are changes coming this year to extend it
Not sure where you are but here the deer yard for the winter ,usally in ceader covered area as thats what they eat for the winter,,,we hunt an area that the deer head to to yard so the more snow we have the better.The only problem is trying to keep warm and keeping my 7 year old son intrested

It's similar here, where I hunt in northern Maine the deer migrate to their winter yards, if you can be there when this is happening, the hunting is excellent. If not the deer stay in pockets and there are huge areas with none. Usually takes a pretty good snow storm to get them moving. I have all of rifle season off this year and am heading north with my camper and will stay till I get snowed out. Nice pics.

:bow: Nice mature bucks. Its rare that a buck gets to that age around here. My lifetime biggest is only as large as one of the bucks in the first pics. I'm a meat hunter and to tell you the truth, I prefer young unbred does. I have a muzzleloader I bought years ago that hasn't ever been sighted in. I'd love to have animals like that to give me reason to.

Awesome looking bucks!! Yeah, there are a lot of good deer here in Ontario. I only participate in the controlled hunt, which is a week of shotgun or muzzleloader only. We usually get a few good deer.
