Default Where are they right now?

If you were a deer right now in Kentucky where would you be in this weather. Approximately 20 degrees w/ fresh snow on the ground and getting hammered by an ice storm(really is getting nasty outside) If you were deer in this weather where would you be?

I'd prolly be laying up under a big old cedar tree in a big old cedar thicket. What about you?

Also do you think this will speed up the shedding process?

When you find out where those deer are hiding, tell me cause we are about to get slammed by the same system here in Virginia. I'm with tyou, I'd be in a pine thicket. Its been shown that the temperature is actually 5-10 degrees warmer in pine thickets during the winter.

It should speed up the shedding process IMO. The added stress of the limitations of the food with the snow and ice on the ground should drop some antelrs that would have stayed on longer otherwise.
