I dont know about better or worse, but I think its more fun for sure....

Twice in the 8 or so years I have been diver hunting, we got snowed on at Siltcoos lake at the coast. It was amazing, the ducks just came cutting in out fo the white to the decoys.... made for quick shots, but two of my best hunts ever....

I would LOVE to get a COLD COLD front with snow at the coast this year with the 7 bird limit on Bule Bills.... man.... thats a GOOOD time.

We have had OK hunts here int eh snow too, but mainly after the snow in the cols and clear... with snot on the ground... makes a good hunt too.
