I started thinking the same thing a while ago Brad...my back yard deer are there for the fallen crabapples...the trees are already bare and digging for what is left on the ground is energy draining

Its gonna be another tough one for sure. Started too early and at a bad time. Right after Rut. I know of 3 Bucks completely shed already. That's stress.
But we'll keep on having antlerless tags. Don't ya just love politics and Insurance companies input into our game management?!

It's gonna be another tough one on the deer. We have a lot of snow here at Stony Plain but there's almost twice as much where I hunt whitetails near Drayton Valley.

Has anybody heard about all the snow (where I hunt mostly), - Whitecourt area. No wonder it's the snowmobile capital of Canada!

Snow! I'm confined to the yard ,no stump shooting for awhile. Went and changed SD card on camera and found the white stuff to be above the knees. No deer sign , so they must be held up in another spot. Hopefully they make it but not looking good.

went out the other day Yes snow is deep ,, Had snow shoes on not bad going ,, some moose tracks not much for deer tracks must be yarded up, went a mile or so without snowshoes would be tough going
