I like hunting late season with snow on the ground. I chose winter.

Season here ends before Winter really begins, but the little bit of snow tracking I've done during the Muzzle loader season is always fun. Winter is my favorite time of year in general.

Early-rut, First two weeks of Nov. usually some light snow in my area. Late season would be my second choice, do have some sightings but deer spookier, need the 7mm-08 for these.

My personal favorite is winter. There is little hunting pressure, and I enjoy the scenery. I also find it much easier to spot deer in the snow. Also, there aren't any bugs - mosquitos in particular:darkbeer:

I prefer hunting in snow, but wish we could get about 8 inches of snow during early November instead of December. Since most years there is no snow in early Nov.

Around here the best hunting is november and snow on the ground so I will call it winter but by far my favorite is when the leaves are changing color and there is ducks and geese in the air.Absolutely gorgeous when the mornings are crisp but not actually freezing!!

December used to be the best hunting here in Michigan. That was before they put in late firearm seasons and MLs became the new centerfire rifle. December hunting here is pretty much a joke now, but it is still my favorite time in the woods.
