Hunted 3c for 3 days...lots of sign but too hard to try and sneak up on any deer. Unfortunately I am a sitter and these deer are bedded down in the pines and with 18 inches on the ground I am just not talented enough to walk up on them... Was busting deer for 3 days.
We have 15-18 inches and frankly it's miserable trying to get around in the woods. The sign we're seeing is mostly in creek bottoms and hemlock thickets, and on steep slopes.
I pulled a trail cam card yesterday, out of 60 pics, not one deer showed up during shooting hours.
