Deer & Snow! Figured it out ?

Maybe i am wrong but i think i got it figured out why we see more deer when there is snow ! The 3 things iv'e hit on are :
1: They can't get snow show shoes so they can't hide their tracks.
2: They can't get snow camo to fit or in their sizes.
3: This is the biggest one! They can't climb trees in the snow and cold like they do in the warmer weather and hide.
I may be wrong but its a thought !

That's completely ridiculous....at least for #3. EVERYBODY knows they hide in holes, not climb trees, sheesh!

But in the snow you could track them to the holes so i will stick with the tree theory ?

Willyp, Willyp, Willyp...! Based upon close scrutiny, and, detailed analysis of your "Location", specifically "-but not home" mentioned/listed above in your rudimentary bio data, it is intuitively obvious to the most casual observer you must reside in perhaps Colorado or Oregon. Are you enjoying some of that wacky stuff?????

I can't believe I even took the time to post this response, but I am concerned about a fellow HPA member who is possibly reaching out on this forum, asking for help... Get a grip man, get it together. We are all here for you...

Mountain lions drop them in from their hoovering positions, duh! C'mon man, you're smarter than that!

#4. the deer are brown and the snow is white, due to evolution they lost the ability to change color like chameleons do.

only the does hide in holes, the bucks dont fit due to the antlers.

some woodchucks grow antlers while hibernating and get stuck underground. when they die the antlers turn to gold.

I can tell by this post that you are an experienced, educated hunter, well versed in the ways of the wily whitetail.

Thank a lot, Gary Alt. The spikes fit in holes just fine until you came along.
