Waiting on Winter – BEST OF Captain’s Columns!

Let’s just hope that this winter, we get a ton of snow like we did last year…even though it was proven that didn’t make a difference with our fire season.  I must admit, the snow falling two days (TWO DAYS) after the general big game season ended was disheartening, but it was still great for trapping and game damage hunts, along with cat and wolf hunting.

Here is a post from the Captain from December of 2012 where the temps were mild then, still, and everybody was still waiting on winter.  Fingers crossed that won’t happen again this year!

Let’s just hope the snow gets here soon so folks can start enjoying their winter time activities.

The ice making on the lakes has been hard to come by with the daytime highs in the 40’s, hardly ice making temperatures. However, old reliable Georgetown Lake has ice and anglers are having some good success catching fish.
