Cool. Actually I am headed to Vermont tomorrow morning for 11 days, and then I will be back there for the opening weekend. I am probably going to stay from Friday till Tuesday, just get in 3 1/2 days of hunting.
I have not gotten out to look around yet but with as wet of a spring as we have had there should be a really good acorn crop on the oak brush and it really does seem to make a difference in the deer patterns where I hunt. I also neen to get out and look at the pinon trees as it usually takes a pretty wet year to get a good crop of pine nuts to go after. It's a lot of work but they sure are good after you roast them up in the oven.
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
You can see a your quarry's breath when it is cold outside...
