Sure they do. It's a very windy day that may bed them down.
Ever see deer tracks in the snow?
YES! I'll spend all day in the woods when it's snowing, whenever possible.
You better believe it!
Yep! Works every time!
I've seen them moving in very heavy snow. Beautiful time to be out.
i got my best buck bow hunting when it was snowing
I have seen lots of deer out in the snow.
even more so than when its raining i love hunting when its snowing!
Yes they do ive found that when there is a good snow deer will yard up what mean is they will gather in sometimes 5 to 10 or more in a herd i really dont know why they do but i have noticed this they will feed together and bed together well i hope you do some good.
They sure do as long as its not an overly cold day. Those warm snowy days are money.
I second the warm snowy days.. Perfect..
Depends on how much its snowing. Most of the time yes they do move but if its really bad out they will just bed down.
i think hunting in the snow is the best time to hunt we hardly ever get snow the last time i was able to hunt the snow was about 6 years ago most of the time it never sticks but we get freak snow storm every few years but in the snow you can see deeper in the woods the deer are grouped up and most of the time on the move and if you do get a shot off tracking is easy the slightest drop of blood you can find it
Seems like an "all deer, all the time" premise in your question. They don't all do the same thing all the time.
I went out on bare leaf litter one morning and sat through 8 inches of accumulating snow. By late morning, I had enough, so I walked around. There were clear tracks and some with snow in them. I got into some heavy hemlock cover, and bumped a deer from it's bed, which was a bare spot in drifted snow. I'll post a pic of it.
no not if they have good cover. They usually eat before a storm, bed down and wait. Sometimes they will move when it is a full moon out.
yes they do, i have shot deer in snow n it seems to work just fine, don't bother them
My favorite time to hunt is when it is snowing. Seems like everything is so quiet in the woods. Two of the bucks I killed this it was snowing so hard I could hardly see them.
