heavy fog this morning and as I have noticed many times, when it is foggy, the deer are not out and about. Saw a total of five as compared to the usual 20-30.

Fog is great to slip into the woods. Not so great whenit comes to seeing any deer moving.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.

I killed my biggest buck to date on a foggy morning in November. Visibility was about 100 yards when I looked up and saw him on a field edge about 75 yards away at around 6:30 in the morning. He went about 30 yards after I put a 50 grain bullet through his rib cage from my MZ. To this day I have no idea which direction he came from or where he was headed. He was just standing there kind of eerily like a statue in the fog.

But I agree, fog does slow down overall deer movement and activity. I see the same thing with heavy frosts, as the deer typically don't get up and going good until the sun melts some of the frost away.

I disagree, nothing new. Great luck on foggy days, I see more from my experience.

Don't see too many in the fog.The frost is another story though.The deer seem to hang in the woods until the frost melts.I'll take a frosty morning anyday.

I have killed a ton of deer in the fog, including my best bow kill buck and my best muzzleloader buck. Have seen and killed a bunch of does. Deer love moving in the fog and I like hunting in it.

I like the fog but don't recall seeing too many deer in it. Maybe it makes them a little bit more weary.

I believe deer move more in the fog but are seen less due to the limited visibility. Some of my best hunts have been on foggy mornings.
