Default Snowing like crazy!!

Well, it finally started snowing today. Expecting 10 inches in the mountains and much colder temps. Not much accumulation in the valleys, but it will remain cold with at least some snow until Saturday (when I get to hunt elk) when it will be in the forties. So, maybe I'll have good tracking snow and reasonable temps following snowing and really cold conditions (10 degrees Friday night). Sounds promising!

Snow is the manifestation of evil. I don't like cold. Might be why I live in South Texas.

onehorse, good luck to you on getting that elk! Hope the snow comes and gives you some tracking help.

Sounds like the SnowGod might be looking out for you after all. Maybe it will run them down for better accessible hunting. Good Luck and Stay Safe!

I've had several pairs of snow shoes, but never hunted with them. If you're thinking about getting a pair, I'd recommend the new aluminum ones. Also, get a pair that's rated for more floatation than your weight might indicate. Better to have more floatation than not enough.
