Sounds like nice weather.

Deer season ended here bout three weeks ago. Two feet of snow on the ground and the high yesterday was -36f.
Too cold for me out there. I won't even drive to town until it warms up some.


Do for yourself as much as you can, eat what nature provides as much as you can. This is the key to sleeping well and living long.

No need to go all the way to MN for those kind of temps. Texas has all the cold you need (currently 9 degrees in the Panhandle). Glad it was a good hunt, though. up

25° in the Hill Country is my limit. Anything colder makes my teeth chatter. Once there i’m checking out.
