Deer move at the onset of snow storms

This just goes to show how getting out into your treestand at the onset of a big winter weather system moving in can be a great time for seeing deer. Sadly no shooters in this group, but exciting to see none-the-less. The chances always seem greater that there would be a bruiser buck trolling nearby when you get a herd like this moving through.

This is not the first time I have witnessed deer movement before a storm, or even during a storm. I have seen some of the biggest bucks around big weather systems like this – before, during, and after. This video was from Monday evening. Just take a look at the extended forecast. This is what I love about late-season hunting. You might not see a deer for a long time and then you get a big system moving through and all kinds of deer show up.

Hunting during the storm might be a little iffy, but those first couple of cold and crisp days after as the high pressure moves in could be gravy.
