what happens to all the deer
 
Its werid bow season I saw zillions of deer. Once gun season started a few weeks ago. Deer sightings have dropped big time. I have noticed as we get closer to the end of the season the number of deer I see is vary few. Where do they go? I swear they pack up and move some where warmer.

With hunting presure, deer sometimes move more at night. Sometimes they just become alot more wary and harder to hunt later in the season. Your best bet is to try to hunt over some sort of food source later in the season. When the weather gets cold, the deer will have to move to feed. Also trying to hunt some in the middle of the day. Deer will feed during the noon hours to conserve energy especially when the weather is cold. They feed at the warmest part of the day in the dead of winter.

Good luck!

The ones that were caught off guard are being consumed by those of us at the top of the food chain. ;) The others have learned by example and are now more wary than ever. It gets very hard at the end of the season.
