I got a Christmas opossum. My 5 year old daughter and I pulled into the driveway on Christmas Eve and there was an opossum on my front porch climbing on my grill. I just had to shoot him. My daughter told me it was our Christmas 'possum. She told everyone about it. She thought it was great!
Also, had a great holiday celebration with family and friends......and I ate like a wart hog!
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
