    The bedding area where I hunt holds deer more so than not. Not every time but the odds are good.

    Depends if its high pressured land or not. Most the land I hunt is highly pressured and the deer seem to bed different areas all the time. I very rarly find deer in the same location.
    If youve seen them there multiple times I would say your chances are good, if it was the first time seeing them there it may not be a frequently used bedding area. Good luck.

    In the cold weather they tend to stay close to the food source as they may feed anytime of the day. so the bedding area may be more stable than in the other times of the year unless of course as mentioned pressure or you bump them. MTH has a really cool way to hunt them.

    if the bedding area is close to a food source i would hunt it. In the snow they more likely to be in the same place as were they bedded when the snow started due to there will be less snow in that bedding spot
