FREAKY FRIDAY! Get out there and enjoy it, as calm and cool conditions will help in the field today before tomorrow’s storm makes a mess of your hunting (and western travel?) plans. We look ahead to that and more in today’s Three Things.

ONE WEEK. (Chickity China, the Chinese Chicken…heh…still love that Barenaked Ladies song!) Hey, we’re a week out from firearms deer opener. Get your gear in order, have your cleaning tools and processing set ready to go, and run a few more rounds through that rifle!
SUPER SLAB. A Tennessee black crappie awaits confirmation as both that state’s record and possibly the world record as well. Caught by Lionel “Jam” Ferguson in May, 2018 the impressive speck weighs 5 pounds, 4.6 ounces. The current record sits at an even 5 pounds from a private lake in Missouri.
SATURDAY SLOP. While the eastern half of the state won’t see much from the weather maker moving in, those in the west will need to keep an eye on the sky as rain-turning-to-snow will move in tonight, leaving a mess by morning.
