That would be real nice. No snow here yet, but cold. I believe if it's going to be cold we should have snow then also.

Always enjoy hunting after that first snow.  Seems like the critters don't realize right away how much more visible they are, and maybe just the jolt to their routines makes them more likely to move.  Good luck out there!  No snow here yet, the way our weather has been this year I suspect we'll get none or be buried by a 2-3 footer, all or nothing it seems.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I'd love to hunt in the snow just once. I bet it's easier to see a deer with the white background.

I love hunting the first snow.  As Roger mentioned, seems like they don't realize they are so visible.  They do learn quick.  Yes, tracking on snow is a whole lot easier, except when you get in a spot that's been trampled over.  DPD, I finally broke down last year and bought a coleman heater for my blind.  My wife was the one that said I should get one.  It is nice, but a 1lb propane bottle only lasts about 6-7 hrs on low.  I have a 6ft hose to hook it up to a 20lb bottle, but haven't used it yet.  Instructions state the tank should be outside the blind
