I suppose since I live in Kansas and you live up north COLD = you have to be dumb, stupid, an idiot or "why the hell am I out here doing this? Oh ya I love this stuff" kind of weather. The reasons I ask I am planning a trip next year and trying to figure out when to make the trip and of course all depends on the weather and well people with PHD's cannot predict so how are we suppose to. Sounds like your telling me pick a decent looking spot and make it later. Was hoping to do it earlier so that we wouldn't have to worry so much about the deer season. Thanks for the info.
