to break out the cross-country skiis and start getting in shape again. As winter has again returned to the far north. Strapping on my skiis and rifle and going out after coyotes and rabbits is my favorite way to spend the winter months. If the snow is heavily drifted my lab, Dakota, will usually go along. Its a pretty quiet peacefull time, well, except when I pull the trigger on my rifle. Very Happy

Lucky bugger....I love the snow, but I haven't been in it or seen any for maybe 35 yrs.

I would love to go hunting in the snow.

Cheers, Vince

I can't even imagine hunting at that sort of altitude...and with snow. Would be magnificent.

Yeah...I know Gelan...startin' to sweat up here already. We are getting heaps of rain, which is pushing the humidity up to a constant of 95% plus.

Beer...yeah...needs to gits a heap more methinks.

Cheers, Vince

What is your plan for getting the elk out after your success or are there dirt roads where you are hunting?

Vince, I'm hereby willing all this years snow to you. Hope you enjoy Very Happy
I've been battleing subzero temps., wind, and blowing snow for the last two days, and this morning its back to ripping again. Right now my lab will have a hard time just getting off the deck to pee, the snow drift is so high. Going to be another long, long fews days just trying to get plowed out again. Sad

So I can't complain about my 3" of snow? Being an Az packrat, cold weather is not my choice. I had to pry my doors open on my truck yesterday morning, but you know, it's not all that bad here compared to you guys, and I'm not out there hunting in it either. Getting from my truck to the house is about the most I'm doin. When I first moved to Or. I lived in an old farm house (just me and my wits) with wood stove for heat only and when you work during the day things may happen.

During a nasty wind storm one night, just as I was getting home from work, a tree came down and ripped the electric power mast thingy off my house. I had a wire dangling and blowing in the wind shooting sparks all over the place, couldn't call anybody as the phone was out also, so I went 1/4mile to my nearest neighbor and used their phone to call the electric company.

They wouldn't come out unless it was an emergency because of all the other damage they had to contend with that night. Well anyway I stiffened my upper lip and enjoyed a dark cold night next to the woodstove. Had to work the next day, when I came home the toilet had froze, the well pump also froze. The fallen tree was still there with the dangling electrical wire, but they had come buy to make sure it was "safe". I had a lot of work to do and ......

A short story long......I don't like cold, wind, or trees (close to the house). Other than to kill unwanted bugs.....I really don't see a need for winter....snow is fun, but...summer here is too short.

8,000'...that is higher than our highest mountain mate. Very Happy Very Happy Laughing

Winter here usually means I wear long sleeve t-shirts instead of short sleeve ones...and on a particularly cold night I will put on some track pants instead of just shorts.

Cheers, Vince

Just for you Vince, Friday it was 5 degrees f (-15 c) with patchy snow that was louder to walk on than dry oak leaves, only saw three antlerless elk and 35 idiots.
Saturday 11 degrees f (-11 c) three bulls at 300 yards through a pine thicket, same idiots, I thought it was illegal to drives quads where they were.
Sunday warmed up to 23 degrees (-5) and four inches of snow with visabilty about 100 yards and wind gusts to 25-30 mph saw 12 cows and calfs but only 10 idiots, then I had to pack up and come down to work, but I have Thursday off and going back up.
But I had fun. Very Happy

Thanks Slots. Its pretty warm here at the moment, although we have had our coolest Spring on record...not one single day over 30*C.

Where we were camping and hunting last weekend, it got down to single figures Celsius over night...but it wasn't really that uncomfortable. A couple of beers, a nice warm fire in the PIG and a good sleeping bag in the tent I and was a happy man. Very Happy Very Happy

Still love to do a hunt in the snow. Hey mate...ya reckon they will ever have an open season on IDIOTS? Seems like it wouldn't go astray.

Cheers, Vince

Heck of a nice rig you have there moose2! Down here in the south, I don't get to see snow like that... I think we've had 1 good snow in the last 7 or 8 years. It looks like it'd be a blast to hunt like that.... maybe one of these days. Wink
