    Hows your winter?

    Just thought id see how the winter has been in other parts of the country here in MN we have basically had no winter at all. Next to no snow at all and warm temps so perfect to the game animals. How bout in your neck of the woods?

    Sucks here in CA. Almost know winter either. If we don't start getting some water soon we are going to be in deep s$$$. It has been nice and mild for the animals but that isn't going to be a good thing come this summer. Also the horn growth is going to be pretty weak for this coming fall. Come on rain and snow!!!

    We have had a very mild winter in southeast WY. The temps were mild and up until last month, not much snow. Although we did get a lot of snow last month and they say snow pack is above 100%. So hopes are high.

    Very mild, but suitable amounts of snow throughout MT. It should help calf/fawn recruitment.

    Here in northeast wyoming its been very mild not to much snow, not very many days with bitter cold temps. We still have gotten and fair ammount of moisture just not too much snow. There should not be much winter kill unless we get a couple of major spring blizzards in late march or early april.

    Yep same here in SW Colorado. I live at 6800' on a big plateau below the San Juans and the La Platas. Both have lots of peaks over 12,000' and they have lots of snow. The latest snotel report say right at 100% of snowpack/moisture. We have not had as much snow at my place as the last couple of years, but still lots of moisture. All the local lakes started the winter above average. The report from our irrigation company that I am part of predicts a 100% allotment this year, looks ok here.

    As you may know. Buena Vista is in a valley at 8000ft. We're surrounded by over 20 mountains at 14,000ft. The mountains suck most of the moisture out before it hits us. They call the valley the banana belt, because of the mild weather. However, the mountains always get plenty of snow, and there's never a shortage of water for the valley and Arkansas River.

    Nice place to live, and only 15 min from the elk and deer.

    NE Oregon has been very mild! Mountain snow levels only about 75%.
    Driving through town today I saw girls in shorts and tank tops! Mid 50's most of this week but slight chance of snow/rain before the weekend is out!
