    Definitely practice with your cold weather gloves on.

    I'd say the best set-up is get a pair of Under Armour Cold Gear Liner gloves and a muff- HSS has a good one.

    I wear the same gloves from Oct through January and they are skin tight. Keep your hands in the muff and throw in a handwarmer if needed and you won't have to use heavy gloves no matter what the temperature.
    Having the right set-up in winter is critical to good winter bow hunting.

    Even in the bait free section the advice is to bait...

    Get in the swamps and find some nice runs coming out of the swamp going into thetthethicker oaks or someone elses bait pile catch them in the thickets and swamps while its still daylight because they hardly ever in my experience, especially big bucks will be in the wide open woods after 6day.

    They will hit other guys bait piles and any remander acorns at night, you just have to cut them off and be where they are while there's still shooting light

    Another thing, most of the runs I seem to find are leading to old bait piles, would deer still be using them after the bait drys up or no

    Id go in at least 50-100yds in. Go on a rainy day and bring a pole saw because most likely its too thick to shoot. All my bow stands in the swamp are too thick and I haveto clip shots. Swamp deer move all times of day, just this 6day I was hunting the area we were talking about and did 3 all day sits. I saw more deer moving from 11-2 than I did in the mornings and evenings, they just browse, bed down for an hour, browse some more. Im still learning the swamp deer thing but they do come up into the oaks at night during the winter for any acorns, twigs, pine needles, bait piles, ect; there's a guy who owns a lot of land right before the wma on the right, you can see all the posted signs, he has like 2-3 huge bait piles winter bow so if you go in the first trail on the right then head into the swamp on your left you will catch the deer coming to his property because theres no thickets or swamp on his property

    I like the inside edge of the swamp. Typically in the pines you have a thick border and then it will lots of time open up a little with a mix of mature pine, gum, maple and cedar. Then you will have the thick cedars. Deer will bed on the cedar clumps in the winter. The open middle areas are what I look for. Find some good runs and fresh droppings. Got to have fresh droppings

    . But you need to get in queitly and you need to stick'em good because its real easy to lose a deer in cover like that.

    Practice with your winter coat as well and use an arm guard if needed.

    X2 on sticking them good. The deer could be pouring a bloodtrail and you will still loose it, a lot of mush and wet moss and little pockets of water and very hard to follow blood and if they run into the cedars, forget about a blood trail
