cold, snowy, bow hunt.

hey, its about 15 to 20 degrees, with about 2 to 3 inches of snow on the ground. i was thinkin about going bow hunting in the morning, the wind is gonna be perfect. here where i live we are not use to these conditions in the season.. but i dont know if i need to hunt in the morning, or evening, or stay all day?

Good luck man. I always like to hunt when the wind is in my favor. I have never got to bow hunt in the snow. Enjoy!

Most of the deer I see when there is snow on the ground are in the evenings and the cloder it is the better they like it.

You can never go wrong by making a day of it. Where I'm from snow is no stranger in the late season and the more the better. Yesterday my nephew and I seen 12 deer and they stayed with in 150 yards of our stands from 15:39 till 17:19 two nice bucks too! One small 6 point and we couldn't make out how many on the other, he wouldn't come out of the brush but he was bigger than the 6 point for sure, but wouldn't you know it none of them would come in range. 4 inches on the ground and they were busy eat'n acorn, love those red oaks. No luck but still a great day in the woods.
