Daily Edge for Tue. Nov. 13

STILL.  A windless morning will start your day off right and animal movement should be fast and frequent in the calm conditions after a five-day stretch of gusts.  Watch for the same this evening as things warm up.  We talk about that and more in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

WARM BIAS.  The long range forecast from NOAA has things heating up for the final stretch of deer season, with temps predicted to be above normal for the next 8-14 days.  In the near term it’ll be warm through Thursday, with a cool slide until the mercury jumps again on Sunday.

 

CHECK IT OUT.  Making a checklist for each outdoors activity – whether hunting, fishing or wrapping up season activities – is a good way to assure you have all your gear and are getting done those things necessary to make sure of a good start to next season.  Make checklists in the winter for summer and fall activities.

 

67.5 GAUGE.  Did you know that the .410 shotgun is the only shotgun to NOT use the imperial gauge measurement?  Gauge is determined by the number of lead balls of the same diameter of the gun barrel to weigh one pound.  So 12 gauge = 12 balls, 28=28 balls, and so on.  Except for the .410, it’d be about a 67-and-a-half gauge.

Stay Sharp!
