low hum when in 4x4

i have a 09 f350. this is my first 4x4 so bare with me. i noticed the other day when i put my truck in 4wd because of snowy conditions i could hear a kinda faint hum at low speeds. tonight i tried it again since we had a bit of a snow storm and i confirmed the noise. it seemed less noticable up to 60km but when i came towards a stop i could hear something.

my question is, being a 4x4 noob, is this normal? i`ve only put the truck in 4wd a couple times when i needed it for a short period when i had to go up a snowy driveway for example, so i`ve never noticed anything.

it has around 9000k on it, and the hubs are in auto.

thanks in advance.

Yep its totally normal. You are hearing the front end howling. The drive shafts, u-joints, and t-case all make a little noise.
