We're supposed to get a little here tonight!

We have had strong "and cold" winds here all day!

Bonus for taking a phone and a shotgun to the outhouse with you. A picture and supper.

Great photos Jeff, and nice hunt. That should be a tasty supper tonight. Looks like your shot placement was very gentle on that breast meat too. I always have been fond of the winter and snow. Nothing beats hunting in new snow.

He was feeding on the high Bush cranberries growing by the outhouse. His crop was full. He was up in the top of the Bush. I waited for him to put his head up then aimed high.  :)



 

No deer hunting today. The woods is an impenetrable wall of bent trees and snow. During the day while I was shoveling, I could hear crashes from breaking and falling tops. The front field depicted was probably safe.:)cra

Musta been warmer out east. Our snow was dry and fluffy so when the gales of November came thru it all blew into drifts. No shoveling required this time. Yours is much more peaceful and pretty.

Not sure how to approach getting in the woods to hunt. It's a solid tangled wall of snow and trees. The trails are non existant. While shoveling yesterday I could hear tops snapping from the woods
