If you would supply a bit more info, where in Ohio, what type of area you hunt. Right now the deer have been pushed by hunters and are most likely still in a hide and seek mode. At the same time winter requires them to find food, that should be your first job. It may be too late to connect on the last day but some good scouting may pay off for the late muzzleloading season if you do that. Ohio farm area that has scattered wood lots is some of the most challenging of hunting as the deer don't seem to follow any set pattern. I know here in NW Ohio its tough hunting. SE Ohio does have some great hunting especially if you hook up some private property. Give us some more info and see if we can help out.
