    Holy crap! Our area is anywhere from 3 to 12. But being along part of Lake Michigan, i'd say 6 inches for us. Then late in the week 50.

    You guys down south, keep your heads down! Tornadoes in Dec?!? WTF!!!

    Favorite Halloween was the 1992 blizzard. My dad, brother and I had been out pheasant hunting (me carrying my BB gun) earlier before the storm hit. That year I called an audible on whatever my costume was supposed to be and trick or treated as a hunter with two fresh killed roosters in my orange vest! Tail feathers prominently sticking out for display purposes!

    Just had to take my jacket off due to how warm it is. Sitting on stand in the middle of December with no jacket, and mosquitoes buzzing around me. This is a first for me.

    It’s been a minute since I’ve been in the stand. It’s been windy and unseasonably warm this week but temps in the low 30’s this morning. Standards are lowering a bit as we get into mid December… Good luck AM shift. This thread needs some blood spilled today!!

    Better signal than I thought. Sounded like a bunch of deer move through an hr before Sunrise... This wind needs to start blowing in a constant direction... Please!

    always loved that scene. Underrated movie. Very cheesy but still holds a place in the heart of my youth.

    might have something to do with what's under the sleeping bag, too.

    be careful out there boys and girls, FoxNews headline banner says over 50 confirmed dead from the tornados, possibly into the 100s...
    ain't a deer in the world worth your lives.

    Storms over. The deer aren't going to kill themselves. Make sure your trees attached to your stands are safe though.
