NINE TOES. It’s an even nine hours of daylight today, starting with sunrise at 8 am on your final day of the firearms deer season. Cooler temps and light snow will highlight relatively cooperative conditions for you to close it all out. We talk about that and more in today’s Three Things.

SNOW, YO! Much of the state finds itself under a blanket of white, with the exception being the southwestern corner. From a trace to around four inches of snow is on the ground coming into the final week of November, setting the scene for late-season hunting.
KEEP CALM. Still conditions will dominate the week, with the exception of Wednesday. Occasional misty skies with light snow may make travel a bit dicey at mid-week so plan accordingly. Temperatures at or below freezing should keep the ice we have on local lakes and add an inch or two.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS. As that ice builds, so does the excitement for ice fishing derbies across the region. Check out all the upcoming events starting at the end of December and running into February.
