I'm going on my second deer/bear hunt in a few weeks, heading to D-5 in Ca near Avery. I went on my first dee/bear hunt in B-zone last year. We were up around 7000 feet and didn't see a thing. We figured the cold weather drove the animals down to a lower elevation.
Has anybody had similar experiences in D-5 when the weather is cold? We're hoping it wont be as chilly as last year, but we're planning on hunting around 6500-7500 feet this year. We scouted yesterday and saw a few does and plenty of sign around 7000 feet, but it was in the 70's yesterday.
