Snow

10 posts in this topic

We are getting some snow today -- any idea how that will help hunting in the next few days?

well, you will at least be able to tell how old some of the sign is.. and they are a little easier to pick out of the brush when there is a little snow on the ground.

Good point.

A buddy of mine shot a deer two nights ago and tracked him for two hours. Then it took him another hour to find his way back.

That is the band thing about bow hunting at dark. Sometimes they are tough to find.

Do you think this bad weather will bring them out a little earlier?

I have over the years found if a big storm is brewing then the deer will come out to feed.Once the storm hits I usually just wait it out and then pop in the woods soon after as they will be hungry.

I had hoped to hit it last night while the first snow of the year was on the ground, but it melted yesterday afternoon. That first snow is great to hunt, in our area, we haven't really truly had it, because it was so slight & didn't last more then 12-15 hours. I did see four deer in the horrible wind behind the hill I thought they'd be at, unfortunately while I was trying to call some far out ones in a close one snuck in close from behind me & spotted me.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
