Set up snare on some heavy sign about a week ago and have had nothing come by. Wondering if they have started to get into their long sleep yet? Usually within 4 days of baiting a site I have some activity. Got off to a late start this year due to a 6 month deployment I've recently returned from.

I still have them on my cameras so they are active as Kevin and MWO stated. Good luck. Hope you tag one.

 Thanks to all on this site who assisted with my taxidermy season . I hope I am even busier next season and can continue to produce even better mounts.
