Frozen marsh hunting

Unread postby northeast beast » Wed Nov 15, 2017 3:50 pm

Anyone ever notice the deer seem to clear out when the first good cold front that freezes. The marshes rolls in. I have noticed this the last few years. Even 3 weeks into gun season if the marsh gets 1" or better ice the deer will stick close to the food and big timber where everyone is located and not go back to the marsh until it is snow covered

Must be pretty small marshes. I see the opposite here. If anything the deer push deeper in. It’s all relative to the size of the marsh I suppose.
