28° here in Upstate NY this morning, the high temperature is to get up to about 32° today. They say we may get some light snow today and tonight.

Yesterday was a completely different day from Friday, some of the snow got knocked down and it was in the 30's, sunny most of the day with light wind. Today will be church this morning and then relaxation the rest of the day.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good morning all. It’s 39 in Indy heading for 41. I’m awake but only because of indoor plumbing. Without it I’d have rolled over and gone back to sleep. The Dragons won 35-10 yesterday despite a slow start that had ‘em down 7-10 in the first quarter. First time they’ve been behind all year. Next game is for the 5A state championship at Lucas Oil Stadium. Indoor game and plumbing! Gonna’ get er started. Have a good day.

Good morning from the treestand folks. Last time out with the bow probably, before we switch over to guns next week. It's 32° here and cloudy. May get flurries or rain later. Deer were moving on my way here so hopefully it continues. Quick hunt this morning and Thanksgiving lunch at the inlaws. Dont know what to say about that. Could be interesting.:rolleyes:

Gotta run. Have a good one.

Good morning, 41 in Texas, rain and 48 in the forecast. This will be a cold week.
Didn't do much yesterday, couldn't find anything touristy my wife wanted to do. Worked on the computer in the morning only to find out it is lacking enough ram to run some programs after the last windows update. Looks like a new one is in my future.
More in laws arrived last night, the entire family will be here for Thanksgiving.
Church this morning then taking it easy.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

Weekend 2 of the 3 weekend sight in days at the club. General public can come to range, have their firearms safety checked and peek for barrel obstructions. We usually have a couple of loaded firearms show up. that is why we take command of the firearm as soon as they walk in the door. Last week was light because of 13 inches of snow and you could noot see the 50 or 100 yard range. We always come away with some stories. Some funny and some frightening. It is enough to keep you out of the deer woods on first day.

Good morning, GoGo. It's 32 in Louisville, allegedly going all the way to 57, which is about average for this time of year. Rifle season for deer here in Kentucky came in last weekend and we've had nasty cold and wet most every day since. I hunted yesterday morning and we had heavy fog that didn't lift until almost 11:30 where i was. No, I'm not making that up.

Miss Cindy made stovetop Salisbury steaks with just-ground Bambi burger last night and they were great. She ground about 15 pounds of burger while I was in the woods yesterday and gave me an A for my prep of the venison chunks and scraps. We grind our venison totally lean, then add a pound of fatty ground beef if we're making something like burgers or meatloaf.

I'll be going to Western Kentucky for Thanksgiving and may try to take another deer down there. After that, we have one more short ML season in December, just a weekend, I believe.

Y'all have a good'n and be safe out there.

morning all. 26 to start the Lords' day, with high 40s maybe into the 50s again, made 55 yesterday. Wow, that's got to be a record for here.
Really didn't do much yesterday, chores, then helped the neighbor doctor his calves, the whole bunch is sick and can't seem to get them over it.
I did get some more creedmoor test rounds loaded, hope to unload some today if the wind stays down till this afternoon.
Off to do chores then to town for church and wally world.
Give God praise and thanks for all we have, prayers for our country and the hurting folks.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Thanks, Donnie, now I'll have nightmares. I like the idea of eating bear, but I have a real phobia about bears eating me. The brown ones scare me way more than the black ones, but I don't think the brown ones climb much, right?

Good show in the tree so far. About 15 deer do far. 5 small bucks. The biggest is an 8 I think. Not quite what I'm looking for. The bucks are running does hard. Fun to watch. I'll sit here another hour or so. See if Mr. Big shows.

Was 38º in the hollow a little after sunrise this morning, but is going into the 50's today and is probably close by now. I got up a little before 4:00 yesterday and drove down to Hoover AL for a UBR match. Didn't shoot very well, but it was a pleasant day, so no complaints. But I'm moving slow this morning and since the boss isn't here, I'm not getting much done. A young fellow I've known since he was a child, killed a very nice buck on my property yesterday. I would have been jealous in past years, but today I'm just happy for him. Looks like 12 scorable points. I'm going to try and attach the pics. There has been at least one very good buck killed on my place each of the last four years. This is a product of my neighbors and myself letting the little ones walk. It pays off.

Nice deer Rick...
They cant get that way if they get a hole in'em the first year.
All we've been seening is little 3s and 4s and there is a bunch of'em.
We'll probably hold off and kill a doe or 3 but...if the freezer needs fill'in...
they might be in trouble...lol
