Well, the snow the night before opening day made it so I had to work the opening morning of muzzleloader season. Brrrr it was cold out, I left the house about 7:20 am and it was 14 degrees.. Yikes! I was working and it was cold, I don't want to think about sitting in a stand when it's that cold. (even know I do).
Anyway, I was able to get out for the afternoon hunt with some snow still on the ground. On my way to the place I was hunting I almost hit several does that came running out and crossed the road right in front of me... Thankfully that was avoided and I headed to my hunting location.
I got settled in for the evening hunt a little after 2 pm. It was chilly but otherwise a beautiful evening. I had high hopes of seeing something as I figured the deer would be up and moving since it was so cold the night before. Well, time went by and I saw a fox about 4:30 pm. Dark started to set in and still nothing.... and more nothing...... It was an all around slow evening and I never did see anything. I guess the deer either moved middle of the day, or just weren't in that area that evening for whatever reason.
I headed out of the woods, man hunting has been slow for me this season.....
