Hunting fresh snow

Postby Stretch » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:58 am

Nothing better than hunting on fresh snow. Don’t care if it’s bird hunting, coyote hunting, deer hunting, it better on a fresh snow. I work for the DOT so of course I’m pushing snow instead of hunting today. Anyone else have an opinion on it.

What's snow? :wink:
I've had several really good dogs, but none were perfect. Neither am I, so keep that in mind!

Probably won't recognize cattails poking out from frozen water then, either :D

Seems to make pheasants dumb down a bit for sure. My problem is not living in pheasant country.

Serious question Mtbirder. Don't your dogs get a little warm when wearing those coats?

That was taken on New Years morning - around 5 degrees. Also after four months of brushbusting, they have about no hair left on their bellies. We only hunted about two hours, they did just fine. That's the only day this past season the orange vests came out - the last day of the season - more of a photo op novelty. I've hunted MT for a few decades now - this is THE 1'st year that the morning temps never got too cold to dictate "no hunting this morning". Interesting times.....

It doesn't snow very often in Louisiana. It tends to make the ground hard and then the woodcock can't find earthworms.
