It didn't help that the temp went from 60 degrees 3 days before the hunt to 6 degrees the first morning either.
My dog got in a hogs face though......We turned 4 loose and they bayed about 200 yds away but we werent able to get close enough before it broke, then it bayed again a lot further away then it jumped in the river. ,) When my hound came back 10 minutes after the chase ended she was wet from head to toe, inside her vest too. I think she went in after it. It was her first race.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
