Looks like the last couple winters has taken its toll on deer in my neck of the woods. I didn't notice a decline last year, but this year there were very few fawns on my first pull and the deer were skinny.
Paw Paw is in snow country. I do know now where Vermontville is so I can not make the comparison to snow.
It will be interesting to see the comparison of your pictures this year to last. QDMAMAN.
