Overall activity status: I hunted the Texas Panhandle on Jan. 4 with friends. It was a frigid afternoon, with temps dropping well below freezing, and strong north winds. Typically just before a major front moves through, I see lots of deer movement. But on that afternoon it was the opposite. We saw only three does at a spot where I've been seeing four to six bucks regularly. The same predictable bucks were there on the trail camera the previous two days, but were obviously lying low directly in front of the incoming storm.
