Its been rediculous around here. We've been bouncing back and forth from the 60s and 70s to the 20s and 30s. Seems like every second or third day the winds shift from the north to the south and vice versa. Idon't like it a bit and I didn't approve these changes!

I hunted yesterday afternoon with 22 deg on the mercury, but felt like 5 with the windchill. People call us crazy for sitting out there in the cold, just dress accordingly and you'll be fine! The best time to hunt is when you have time.
We can't kill monsters sittin' in the recliner with fuzzy bunny slippers on now can we?
