    I like snow. I hate the years when it’s just a frozen tundra and no snow. For the most part, I think our winters are pretty light most years. Now, my in-laws are snowbirds we’ve spent a few Christmas’s in SW FL and taking a walk in shorts and T-shirt or going to the beach on Christmas definitely has it’s advantages.

    This is kind of the same time I’d go down or one of the days after Christmas. My in-laws go down like mid October some years. I want to be here in the Fall. Of course, I hunt, and they don’t. What sucks though is the busy season in the areas we visit. Crowded.

    Biggest deer I ever put my eyes on walked out on a 80 degree plus afternoon during muzzle.

    I would have bet my entire life savings I wouldn’t see a deer.

    my buddy had 2 beg me to go I said this is a waste of time.

    I was thinking the same about Sunday the 17th. Should be a great morning, in the low 40's after a front comes through. If the weather holds up, I'll be in a tree sunday morning. Of course its still a long way out.... So, we'll see.

    I have some pictures taken last year on October 11th. There was more color in the leaves than they are this year on the same date. We need a good cold snap to get things moving.

    I was thinking the same thing that the leaves are slow to start turning this year. Maybe because of all of the rain.
    Need a little frost

    I think it is due to the rain. It was much drier last year at this time.

    Last year was much colder during the two day early M/L season. I about froze in my stand but they were really moving that morning, on October 17, 2020, bagged a nice 8-pointer around 9:00 AM. I think the temp was in the upper 30's around 36*, not like this year with a low in the 70's with high temps in the low 80's.

    Can’t get them from the couch so I’ll be out freezing or sweating, sunburning or drenched.

    good luck to all. It’s my personal favorite weekend.

    Saw 3 or 4 small bucks chasing last year on the Saturday of early muzzleloader. Great, cold morning for sure.

    Looks like they changed the forecast 66 for the high and mid 40s during the night with no rain.
