Default Hunting in Snow Yes or No?

I'm debating on going out tomorrow morning and afternoon since I still have tags left and it just snowed about 10" in Lake County, IL on Friday. I'm just looking for adviceas far as what I should expect. Will the snow and 10 degree morning temp help or hurt the hunt?

I'm in Lake county too. was out yesterday eve and saw nothing in my area . It's been really dead. It's all suburban subdivisions with some fields and unincorporated land. They will be out feeding so look for food sources. Unfortunately I only have this one spot here abd it's hit and miss the deer cruise the area and are not always bedding in the same place.

I love the snow it gets them moving you can see where they have been and tracking is real easy . Nothing like fresh blood in the snow . I would definitely head out for a hunt
