Thigh High Snow!!

SO I've been out the last couple days trying to find some deer with hardly any sign whatsoever! We have snow up here past my knees and I'm not quiet sure where the deer are and what strategy I should use to try and locate them in the last 3 days of the season.I can only walk about 30 or 40 yards before I have to stop and take a break and catch my breath. Anyone else ever have to hunt in this deep of snow?

Re: Thigh High Snow!!

I hunted the past two days in snow over the knees...The deer are laying down and not moving far from feed. All the deer I saw yesterday were covered in snow the beds were melted to the ground and the only thing sticking up were there heads. I never saw most of the deer till it was too late. Your best bet is to get up under the pines and walk slow looking for them.

Snow drifts are very deep in many places I have seen the last few weeks.
