Default hunting over snow??

so there is snow on the ground here in central missouri. and it is muzzleloader season. i'm wondering where i should set up?? we have some hilly brushy openings where a huge three phase power line runs. a-lot of open fields and some very very very dense woods. if you guys were in this sutuation what would u do?? and some tips on hunting post-rut/post-season?? it's like the bucks just dissapeared and it's only does!!

I would get out and look for tracks. That will tell you where to hunt.

Find an easily accessable food source, winter wheat for example. Even in a dusting you can see where the deer are runnning. Look for tracks anyway.

Any kind of good food source. The deer really start to eat after the rut.
