Last day!

Anyone going out? I had planned to head out about 830 but I may wait as the stomach bug is going though me.

We finally got some snow to stick here in SW Pa!

Good luck!

I'm heading out in an hour.

Good luck and I hope you conquer that stomach bug.

We have 3 inches on the ground and it has warmed up to 18 degrees.

I attempted to go out on the last day but with the ice crust on top of the snow, any deer within 3 miles can hear me coming lol.

Just got back to car for some lunch and decide what next. Didn’t have real plan so I waited till legal light and started a walk in this only snow I hunted in so far and found tracks right away at road berm. Felt optimistic and was going to make a big circle. Eventually started following some running tracks and unknowingly got about 75yds from them in there beds but the wind betrayed me and the snorting started in the laurel. Found other tracks and think I kicked out more. Working on a plan for this afternoon if I stay out.

In SW PA we had a nice fresh coat of soft snow and I managed to sneak up on 8-10 deer in at least three different groups, but things just didn't come together. When I'm by myself, still hunting is probably my favorite thing to do, and I was happy to have deer in range today. I have a bad sinus infection and it was giving me an extreme headache to stay out in the cold, so unfortunately for me this season ends with a swing and a miss. Good luck to anyone who is staying out until dusk!

A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!

Strike two😩Decided to walk up mtn on sunny side around 1:30. Ended up being frozen crust. Figured no chance of seeing anything. As I approached a small laurel patch 3/4 up mtn it exploded with deer. Believe 5 in all come out and one stopped about 75yds took steady aim off stick and no sign of hit after search. Going back in for one last hurrah where I saw sign earlier.
