Ok so with the cold front pushing in the next few days.. Out of the 3 days I'm only able to hunt one... Should I go Wednesday when it is kinda first coming through.. Thursday when it's cold and a 80% chance of sleet, rain, ice... Or Friday just cold.. Or does it really mater...

I'd still pick Friday. When the front blows in will be pretty windy. Hunting the precip could be good if it is intermittent

That is the day I'd pick out of the the 3. If suns comes out a little they'll feel like stretching and getting a bite to eat.

Yeah, the timing on this front really sucks ( not that there's ever a good time for freezing precip). I'm trying to close a deal near Abilene but can't leave the Dallas area until tomorrow afternoon and it's not looking good for driving by then.

Today right now would be my choice. Just drove from Junction to Fredericksburg, saw more whitetail and axis than I could keep track of. Saw a group of about 15 whitetail does and a small herd of axis before I even got to the highway.

I'm hunting in a mesquite bottom trying to stay out of the wind, but it's not working very well. Nothing yet...
