Drifting snow packs real hard. It can also get into the fur depending on the wind. add that to an excited/overheated animal and hypothermia is a killer.

I’ve had reds 100% under the snow until they popped out at my approach. They were dry and healthy as heck. but it was not drifting snow.

here in the swamps, they get typically a big rain and mud to death, then front comes thru and animal dead before first flake ever falls.
