    Nice! We won't see 60's here, (or green), for quite some time.  Cold and wind till March, then two months of snow.

    My view. It is 72 degrees and absolutely gorgeous outside. 

    (In case anyone is wondering, it’s a Henry .45-70 with a Primary Arms 1-4x scope on top)

    My place looks just like that Paul...except there's no leaves and the grass is under a foot of snow and it's freaking cold...and it's going to get colder...

    No sign of exceptional cold in the near future in AL either.  Fall is the most enjoyable season here, well except the leaves.

    Wife missed a nice buck on the other field. She's seen deer 3 out of 4 trips and I've seen nada

    We're about 160 miles South of Bullsi so we're about 5-10 degrees warmer on average but otherwise very similar conditions. In late fall and winter that is. In early fall it's similar to Spring and summer with weather influenced by the Gulf of Mexico, warm to hot and muggy. That sucks.

    NO!!! The wind in Texas hardly ever gets over 180 MPH!

    I have a similar view this afternoon,  though it's cloudy and about 10°cooler this afternoon,  in the mid 50's

    It's in the 60's this morning, ahead of some predicted bad weather later today. Since it'll be 10+ days before we're able to go hunting again, I'm headed out this morning for one more chance.

    We went Sunday afternoon and saw nothing
