If its below teens i stay home. If theres real crusty snow i really dont get excited to go, i dont care how good a hound you got thats tough trackin for them. Once it hits 50's 60's for day time highs, get ready to rock n roll.
In the winter ill head out right at dark or even go an hour to a half hour before dark. if the coons are going to move i really think they do it early evening or else mornings. My buddy was takin his walkers just for a walk the other morning around 9 30 along the yellowstone. His dogs caught one on the ground. They have to move sometime to get a drink and scrounge for what food they can
