CHILL AHEAD. While the weekend will be nice, next week’s dip into the deep freeze will be another story. On the bright side, when we come out of it, ice should be thicker, sloughs should be frozen and we’ll be well set up for the start of winter! We cover that and more in today’s Outdoors Roundup.

COLD SNAP. Looking into the long-range, we’re seeing a mighty cold snap setting up for next week. Highs below zero and lows at twenty below will get the ice firmed up for just about everyone and solidify those sloughs for your late season hunts.
