Default weather

Had a little snowy/sleet falling as I headed home this morning from work. I was just cleaning my truck from the PA trip in short sleeves Sunday.

The weather has been out of whack all over the place this year.

That sounds like Missouri weather. There's an old saying here in Missouri:

"If you don't like the weather today, it'll be different tomorrow"

I got a day off work tomorrow (Wed) and I can't wait to get back out there to hunt

Tator so Missouri isn't as bad as us in New England
We have a motto like that but ours goes: If you don't like the weather in New England just wait an hour it will change

Well the day off didn't got that well. Temps got in the mid to upper 50's and nothing was moving all day. I saw 2 does a little before 8am and then saw 3 does at around 5:45pm- watched them for awhile hoping a buck would pop out but ran out of light to see through my scope. Just then a doe comes running out of no where towards the other 3 and sure enough behind her was a buck, couldn't see how big he was, but at around 100yds he looked tall and decent sized. Of course, too dark to shoot- couldn't see a thing through my scope and couldn't even see him through my iron sights.

Oh well. Going to start shooting some does this weekend. Going to take at least 2.

Good luck to everyone else!
