I love hunting in snow! Unless the snow is hanging from the trees and brush it will help in spotting deer sooner. Also allows you to track deer or see movement patterns easier. Certainly they make less noise in the snow. So it becomes more of a visual affair in spotting them. We don't have any on the ground yet in NE MN. Although that could change before the weekend.

I hunt north of Hayward, Wisconsin and I always love to have about 3 to 4 inches of snow on the ground, you can see them better, much easier to track when you hit one (if he doesn't go down right away) and much , much easier to drag out with a little of the white lubricant on the ground !!!!
Too much snow however can be a bad thing. Just trying to walk or dragging a deer out in anything more than 6" of snow gets difficult.
Good Luck !!!!!

I think there is nothing better then light snow cover to make hunting better. When the leaves are off the trees, and there is light snow on the ground, it seems the deer are so much easier to spot sneaking through the woods. Another advantage is, snow makes for a quieter hunt. You can walk around with less noise, although I have seen some that can still make more noise then a marching band. And if you need to track, well the snow is the best....

Good luck and be safe, thats the main thing.........
