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.

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.

We've had about a half inch of snow in the 10 years or so I've lived in the San Antonio area. Lol

Well....the news guys would say it might snow...but it won't stick to the ground is the thing...about 3-5 years ago it snow all around us...Houston got some snow and I think Victoria got like a foot of snow! But do we get anything. NO. The only time I have ever touched snow was in Colorado one summer....
