SLOW PROGRESS. In the last of our crop reports for the deer season, the USDA shows that less than half of last week – with its cold temps and late snow – was suitable for harvest and nearly 30% of the state’s corn remains stuck in the ground.
YOU’LL BE FULL TOO. This month’s full moon (the beaver or snow moon) falls on turkey day at 11:39 pm. Don’t miss out on the uptick in action in the field and sneak in a hunt on Thursday evening before you fill up as well.
BLACK OUT. We’ll be watching the flyers for you again this year to find the best deals in the outdoors, so stay tuned. Early leaders include perennial stocking stuffers from Menards (12 MP Wildgame Trail Cam for $40) and Runnings (Vortex Binos for $150).
