Over the years, I’ve killed a couple of dandies on this date. Unfortunately, today was uneventful. When I got out of the truck, it was 0 degrees, and it never warmed up. Although the temperature climbed to 15 degrees, where it leveled out, the deer activity was minimal. Donny saw a doe and fawn, but nobody else saw anything. Donny forgot his coat today, so it made his few hours of sitting a little miserable. In an attempt to stay warm, he sang the song “Maniac.” We all laughed at him and told him he didn’t have to prove he was a tough guy by sitting in 0 degree temperature with one sweatshirt on for four hours before calling it a day and heading home. 

  Snow rolled in around 1:30, so Dad and I decided to do a quick run through a piece of property to see if there was any sign in it. We found a fair amount of sign but nothing fresh. The area definitely has some possibilities for the future.

  With snow coming in the next few days, I’m not sure what next week will bring. I’m hoping some of the bucks get moving again in the areas I’m hunting. I’ve never seen things come to this much of a standstill this late in the season in the Adirondacks. I’ve seen it in other parts of the country but never here. I will be researching my memory banks to figure it out.
