Im not sure, I saw tracks but they might have been from the night before? can i tell how fresh the track is?
A 2 year old beagle really should have his nose to the ground . Maybe try jumping a rabbit yourself and see what he does on a known hot track.
He may be too hot nosed to be able to track in the snow, but normally they do at least try. I have had some hot nosed hounds that really don't even bother unless the temps are up a bit higher if there is snow on the ground.
