Post Hows winter treating you?
I've been reading about some crazy temperature swings over the US.
Must be something worth hunting in the cold.

Currently I'm getting one of the best summers I can remember.
Southland is currently baking in 95deg f. Work got to 140deg in places but I am in a smelter.

Its too hot to get motivated. Did shoot a hind on Friday evening. Went bush because it was to warm to be in the open. Stopped to look at a real deery spot across a gully and dropped a hind that was staring straight at me from 150 yards away.
The wee 300blk dropped her where she stood. An hour an a half recovery in 90deg isn't real fun.

It was 61deg f in northwest Louisiana today, cold front started blowing in at 3pm and they are calling for 2 inches of snow in the morning. Mother nature must be on the rag with all her mood swings.

It doesn't grow as fast when it's cold, which is good, but it still grows. Shit never dies... :(

I talked to old timers who remember summers like this. The swings ya'll are getting sounds like what we can get in a day
