Was thinkin about you out there TJ, glad you were able to put a few on the ground. I ended up postponing my black hills trip until may due to all the snow they got up in the hills.

We drove to arrived in KS the day before the opener.. 45 minutes from our destination it was 75, we hit our destination with 31 degrees and sleet.. Awoke to a car covered in ice.. But surprisingly the birds were on fire.. My girlfriend yelped up and killed a longbeard that a.m. and I could have been done in one shot but I thought they were over the line.. I was shocked considering the huge front, snow, sleet and wind.. We ended up killing out on hunts after noon.. Found a nest being incubated on day one which explains the last sentence..

Usually the black hills of WY are a slam dunk for us, one day and done.. But we got in WY and it started snowing and blowing like I have never seen.. 40mph winds.. All the birds were with the cattle on private ground.. I was so pissed at the weather the first day, I got in my PJs and watched Scooby doo.. Sal went out by herself and was back in 1 hr with blood on her hands killing a long beareded bird for the hills at 9.5.. I only worked 2 birds both 100 yards over the land on private ground.. I wanted to stay another day, but opted out as they were forecasted for another 8-12..

Our destination in SD got the same 16 inches as you encountered.. Most of ours was gone on our arrival.. The first morning I hunted, I was greeted with 4 inches of the white stuff and struck and killed one 15 minutes after shooting light.. The weather remained absolutely horrible while we were in SD, the birds gobbled the first 20 minutes after flydown and for an hour before flyup, but we had one of our best years there. :? If you got in tight to the roost or caught one in the evening they commited suicide.

I swear we had a snow cloud attached to our reese hitch.. The weather made it very difficult to stay motivated much less enjoy hunting.. Looking at the looming weather, I about canceled our whole trip.. Figured it would be a waste of money, or birds would be killed strictly through crawling. I think the whole time we were gone we had 2 nice days one in KS and one in SD.. Between the mud and snow, it was very difficult to get anywhere we wanted to hunt..
