    Global warming also causes global cooling, temperature anomaly’s, and overall less predictability in climate forecasting.

    I fully expect in 20-30 years that April, June, and November will be the coldest months of the year, whilst March, September, and January will be the hottest months of the year. Outdoor gardening will be near impossible- best build yourself a nice greenhouse if you want some semblance of consistency.

    I was hunting the 1st season when I went there... Everything looked fine when I went to bed. Woke up to 5 in of fresh snow on the ground to start the season off. It didn't hurt the hunting, but made things pretty uncomfortable.

    Hopefully they will still plan duck season around when the most corn is flooded so I can keep short stopping them here.

    1st is hit or miss but man it can be lights out sometimes. I just don't like how short it is plus no weekend in it.

    2 years ago we got a once in a lifetime April snow storm right before our first season, like 28" of wet, sloppy, snow. The walk out with my bird was brutal, being fat and all. I live and hunt in snow every year, but that was one of the longest 600 yard walks in my life.

    They still wake up horny in the morning. A gobbler strutting in the snow is an awesome sight.

    The very 1st turkey hunt I went back in the 70s was like that. Drove down to my parents house during heavy thunderstorms the day before and woke up to maybe 6" of heavy, wet snow. I didn't know the weather was to turn and only brought light camo clothing. Borrowed what I could from dad, several sizes too small, and was miserable during the hunt. Called in a tom but it hung up maybe 75 yards out and then moved on. That was it for the 2 day hunt
