Planned hunt

Planning on an afternoon hunt today, taking advantage of the white woods we've got from our recent snow. Tennessee gun is still open and I happen to still have two buck tags left, so I'll give it an afternoon sit and see what happens. We have a nice strip of river bottom land we hunt that has one stand with long views, so the .270 WSM will be dusted off for this afternoon's trip.

I hope that some of you experiencing snow now and in the next day or so have an opportunity to get to the woods. I have always enjoyed being in the woods during or just after a snowfall! If you do get to go out, best of luck!  Thumbs up

I'm debating a hunt this

I'm debating a hunt this afternoon. We have about 7" on the ground now and it's still snowing lightly.
The problem is going to be getting to my hunting lease. I called a friend near where we hunt and he said they had at least a foot of snow on the ground. He hasn't been out on the roads so he couldn't tell me if the roads had been scraped at all.
If I can get to our cabin, then I can start hunting/tracking deer out the back door. I would like to get out and track a deer in the snow. I have only had a couple of hunts in the snow so anytime I can get out to hunt in the snow, it's a bonus.
Ah right, I'll get my stuff together. Hopefully I won't spend the night in the truck. Hahaha.
Good luck Tndeerhuntr! Post some pics if you're successful!
