Wish we'd get a nice bit of

Wish we'd get a nice bit of snow down here, but that's still a month and a half away.  At least it's been pretty cool here for the first few days of the season.  Hunting in 65 degree weather is much better than 90 degrees..... Yes

Wet weather would be nice!

Wet weather would have been nice yesterday!  I went out with my son last evening and almost got blown off the mountain.  We stayed there for over three hours (for some stupid reason) before I finally told him that we probably weren't going to see anything.  We ended up walking out and then driving around with hopes of seeing something off the roads for the next hour.

Of course today it's been drizzling all day!  Perfect stalking-with-the-bow weather!

Good luck to you guys that get to hunt in the snow!  That is my all-time favorite time of year to hunt.

update on our little storm.

update on our little storm. its dumped just about 36 inches above 3500' and another 12" expected through out the day tuesday. not too bad for our first storm of the season. should make for an interesting late season hunt in NOV. now i'm just worried about getting to the spot i've been scouting all summer. If not i do have a plan b,c,d,e,f,g,and h so I'll still be hunting.LOL. The forcast calls for dry wed, then rain in the valley and snow in the mountains thurs, thru next mon. should be fun.

lol

LOL. 4' just from this storm we have 2 more coming in through out this week alone. Plan A is at about 3000'-3500' so I'm hopeingto get in there come NOV 20th. if not i have a very good Plan B on private timber area in lower elevation that always holds good deer and nobody want to hunt it because you actually have to get out of your truck and walk. go figure. I have hunted it before and have seen some great bucks, elk, bear. i will hike in about 5 miles and pick a spot and hunt, and have only seen 1 other person in there in 10 years. they do allow hunting just no cars or trucks, atvs.  This weather pattern is pretty typacal this time of year then usally we'll get some melt off. so thats what I'm hopeing for. I've had my eye on a very nice 4x4 blacktail all summer and want a crack at him.

Good luck numbnutz... I hope

Good luck numbnutz... I hope you do get a shot at that buck. Sounds like you guys are getting quite the storm. We had a record low pressure system that went through during our second rifle season. It was on par with the pressure that occurs in storms that produce hurricanes. I believe I heard that the storm had the lowest recorded pressure of any terrestrial system in North America. I wonder if it was the same one that you guys got. Hopefully everybody out there is gearing up and going to be prepared for what they find once they hit the mountain. Search and rescue missions are not very fun in that much snow... either is spending the night on the mountain.

be careful

Definitely be careful out there guys.  It is well worth packing a signal device or cell phone if you have reception where you hunt.  Those emergency blankets don't take up much room either.
