Exclamation HELP PLEASE! 2006 sportsman 500 ho

I have a 06 sportsman 500 ho and runs great all summer long but when it comes time to plow it will not engage 4x4. It seems like if it's cold it won't shift in four wheel. Warm no problem at all in and out of four wheel on demand with switch as it should. What should o do or look for?
