Great morning behind the glass. Lots of does and fawns. A few bucks but nothing to go after. Snow is very loud . Hope it softens up this afternoon. Most of the deer are up high on the top 1/3 of the mountain .

Good luck fellas!! I'd be scared if I was a mulie anywhere out there! Good call on the jammer, as I always find whiskey to provide a certain tang the next day...when all else fails there is the dog scooch

From: Ambush

Just turn the glove inside out first. Unless you’re a nail biter.

Or put it in a Ziploc and trade it out tonight after the drinking starts.

"Pro tip, don’t leave the truck without wet wipes or you may end up losing a glove."

Hunt, I think that's a rookie tip. A true pro tip is that your buddy may lose a glove! :)

From: t-roy

Wouldn’t the snow pack?! Keep your gloves on, and that way your fingers don’t get cold when using the snowballs.

Snowballs..........Takes off all of the new and part of the old!

The was no play to happen here now. 20 inches of snow and 26 deer. But what if I could get above them. So I head that way. The deer watch me head around the ridge. Back side is brutal with wind and snow. Little did i know the big buck and a doe fawn had pulled off !!

On a real note, that was a humbling hunt. Great time with great friends, but man those deep snow conditions are tough to get close in.

From: Treeline

Bowhunting in snow stinks!

Seems like it takes twice as much effort and makes ten times the noise! Also, snow and ice in your optics, arrow release, cams, string, nocks, etc. makes finding animals and getting a shot really tough! Especially for spot and stalk hunting!

You guys might try splitting up and looping around the deer out of sight and setting up on escape routes then have one guy try sneaking in on them. It can be a shit ton of work to get around the deer out of sight to set up but can be very effective.

I only had 3.5 days to hunt due to my work schedule in Alaska. To say I overextended with leave this year would be a massive understatement. This hunt was certainly more about hanging out w good friends again than it was a kill mission. Had fun and learned a lot yet.

The mule deer curse continues.

From: ELKMAN

From: Treeline
04-Dec-18
Maybe you should try your Halloween camo trick, Trevor?

That seems to work on their northern cousins:-)

If you want a decent mule deer there are a lot of options that also do not require freezing your tail off in deep snow...

Might even be able to hunt in really nice weather and hunt 2 species if you play your cards right;-)

Tough conditions for sure.
