Default Tired of Winter

Another cloudy day in the 30's in Southern Illinois. The ground is frozen below about 3" so I still can't md. Putting on my muck boots this morning and heading to the creek to look for some old bottles. Got to do something before I go stir crazy!!!!

I don't know how you snowed in people survive! that long without detecting, I'd go nuts too.

I hunt from November until January. Not much happening in February though. Plus when everything starts to thaw, it turns into a muddy mess.

...It "ain't" easy...

Thanks to all my other hobbies to keep me busy. Also lotsa time to do research, etc. Plus all the household stuff I put off all summer.

The struggle is real, just got 6.6 inches this past Sunday and they are predicting another 2-3 Wednesday and mixed precip this weekend. Apparently they didnt listen to our stupid groundhog.

Stircrazy is coming. Ever see "The Shinning?" I'm thinking frozen in a snowbank is my next move.
