There was heavy fog in Bedford Co for hours this morning. This is first morning with no deer movement observed. That raised the question in my mind as to how heavy fog affects the deer. What is your experience hunting in thick fog?

There's two ways to look at it. do the deer feel more secure because the thick fog makes them feel hidden and they moved early but you couldn't see them because of the fog. Or does it make them bed down and not move because like us they cannot see as well and that makes them cautious.

Usually, deer will move more and longer into the morning in a heavy fog. They feel secure moving in a low-visibility environment.
