    Question Fallow in the colder months quick question

    Hey guys gotta question about fallow, we have a fairly good idea where Fallow hang out on our hunting block. We usually see them feeding open sunny faces and slips at first light, haven't been up there recently but will the frost keep them tucked in the scrub or are they still likely to be feeding at first light on the sunny faces ? Or should I check the warm faces at last light instead ?
    Guess I'll find out tomorrow either way but any advice would be great.
    Thanks

    My advice is to make yourself a nice hot cuppa then take a seat on the couch in front of the fire then get the binos out and find them before making the decision to leave the house
