That happens to a lot of us. Remember it's the hunt that matters most. Late season is a favorite of mine. Deer are most likely in their winter patterns. Food sources are all that matters to them so figure out where they are feeding and you will see deer. One thing is different for me, I normally shoot more deer in the morning during archery, rifle, shotgun seasons but shoot more late afternoon even the last 10 minutes of the day in late season. Put some snow on the ground and things are pretty clear as to where the current travel patterns are. Staying warm and in the woods can be a challenge in it's self. I was hunting at -15* wind chills in PA in January but was able to shoot one of my biggest does ever with the flintlock. It had been a long time since I had hunted in extreme cold like that, but for a couple of 60 year olds we did well and had a great time in camp.
