Default Snow

Well we got our snow Christmas night and it was a dandy to. We got about 12 inches down in the river bottom where I was hunting. The Triumph didnt get to go boom, but it was a pretty sight. Rarely do I get the chance to hunt with a gun in the snow. This is a pic of my turnip patch covered in the white stuff. The high managed to hit 30 with the wind it made for a cold hunt, but the ground blind helped a bunch. I forgot how much fun it is to walk in a foot of snow. We were under a blizzard warning with drifts up to 3 feet. Semi should have been up here hunting lol.

We had the same amount of snow here and the Drifts have all roads blocked.

Actually Greg, I wish it would snow here two days each year. The first day to provide the novelty and fun of hunting in snow. The second day to remind me why I don't like the miserable stuff.

We got it last night, about a foot also. Too bad it came so late this year, our Late MLing Season ended on Dec 18th. We uaually have snow from Thanksgiving on but we got robbed! Now I could care if it snows untill next hunting season.

I sent it there special. After it dumped a foot of snow on me. I hope you don't get the blizzard high winds like we got with it. But that would make for some interesting hunting.

We got the cold but the snow stayed south of us (I'm very thankful for that). I'm not too fond of that crap.

About 3" on Christmas eve here which made for a beautiful Christmas morning

Then about 5" more yesterday. We still have a week and a half left of hunting, but I've been fighting a chest cold so not sure I'll get back out. Love hunting in the snow, and about half the time we get a few days with some snow on the ground during hunting season. I'm with BP....for me, once hunting season and Christmas are over - I could care less if we get any more. Usually doesn't work out in my favor though. LOL
