Sorry for the delay on the temp report T.B.. It got to 16 degrees here the other morning...way colder than I prefer.
The coldest I ever saw here was -9 in 1986. I was duck hunting that morning with one of my best buddies. We had to break the ice into pieces & slide it under the sheet that covered tha rest of the lake. By the time we got decoys set out, that hole we made had re-frozen. On the way to the blind, I pushed a dead limb about the size of a pool cue out of the way. It broke just below my hand and came back to slam me right under the right eye. It was so cold, my face felt like it was about 3 times as big as normal. My buddy's 1100 would not feed a second shell, so he had a semi-auto-single shot. We got our limits on ducks though.
Luck Counts, good or bad
