I used to think the Farmers Almanac was a joke - but have been proved wrong on that. The Alamanc is usally quite accurate! Here is what we are in store for:


"After a year of unprecedented warmth – both during the winter and summer months – the great debate over whether or not Old Man Winter will return with a vengeance is on.

Last winter was the fourth warmest for the contiguous 48 since record keeping began in 1895, with 24 states experiencing below-normal precipitation. In fact, California experienced its second driest winter ever. In only 10 states—chiefly across the nation’s midsection— was winter precipitation above normal.

The situation became critical this past spring and summer with broiling hot temperatures across much of the country and the most severe drought conditions the nation has seen in more than 50 years.

For the coming season, we’re predicting that winter will return to some – but not all – areas. We think it will be a “winter of contraries, as if Old Man Winter were cutting the country in half. The eastern half of the country will see plenty of cold and snow. The western half will experience relatively warm and dry condition. In other words, as in the political arena, the climate this winter will render us a nation divided.

We predict that real winter weather will return to areas from the Great Lakes into the Northeast. Most eastern states – as far south as the Gulf Coast – will see snowier than normal conditions and cooler temperatures.

We are “red flagging” February 12–15 and March 20–23 for major coastal storms along the Atlantic seaboard; storms bringing strong winds and heavy precipitation.

But on the other side of the country, winter will continue its hiatus for another year. The forecast for west of the Continental Divide – the Pacific Northwest, desert Southwest, Pacific Coast – calls for mild temperatures and below-normal precipitation.

For much of the drought-stricken prairie region, an average amount of winter precipitation will bring long awaited relief "

The dilemna im facing right now, is im more excited about the upcoming prospect of some good ice fishing, vs, the even more upcoming bow season.  Even after scouting out some pretty 'deery' woods last weekend, my thoughts are more around getting my ice gear in order.......im sure I'll get squared away here pretty soon. Perhaps a good practice session will help me to snap-to, so to speak.  But Im really liking these weather predictions.

I'm going against the grain and hoping the soft water sticks around. It's nice to run the Dragon and be the only boat on it's entire length. The fishing was great last fall/winter and it seems to be carrying over quite well.

Not trying to rain on the parade but the lake fishes much better from a boat.
On that note... I know of a nice snowmobile for sale.

Perchnut why not let me hunt in your spot while you get your gear together. I'll let you know how it turns out.

My buddy that Ive hunted with for the past 20 years is moving back to Pa, so it will be a little different without him for sure.  But Im not sure I have the strength to break in another Pa guy!    Im going to get my bow out this weekend and do a little shooting.  If I remember correctly, im down to only a couple of arrows left, so a trip to Gander or a call to cabelas will be in order.  I heard next week is supposed to be quite cooler so maybe the big freeze is on its way!!
