    Yeah, back in my day, the M88 had a gasoline motor in it. A big one. Absolutely crappy mileage.

    He was on of the guys that worked on updating the m88 he had one of the first m88a1 when he was down in polk, we were just talking about the mileage recently the Continental diesel in his was getting 3-4 gallons per mile and 6-7 with a good load. He said his had some work and made a good bit more then 750 hp. He had a arctic sleeping bag for the real cold nights.

    My son shot a mangy red fox in the horse pasture behind his house yesterday.
    229 Calhoun rifle, total devastation through the rib cage.

    You can't get them all, did you see any deer over there?

    Surprise, Az
    I'm spoiled, living in Phoenix we hunt deer when it's 50 - 70 degrees and in a t-shirt. I couldn't handle your temps for a minute so I congratulate you.

    The coldest I remember hunting in it was 22 degrees up on The Rim. I had an old cloak from my SCA days that kept me warm. It was bow season but I never saw a buck. Three does almost ran over me when the heard of Elk came in. Too bad they never got close enough for a shot.

    Two years ago when I was back in New York deer hunting on Thanksgiving day it was 8 degrees below zero.
    Needless to say I didn't go out for to long. With the wind blowing it don't take long to get cold fingers and feet.

    If you live & work in the cold you do get acclimated to it but the older you get the tougher it is to get motivated. It’s -2 now as I head out for work. Many times at hunting camp the only things that weren’t frozen solid was the whiskey & Coleman fuel. That’s also where I learned to love dry lube-even thin gun oil will lock up a lever action in subzero conditions.

    You don't hear @LoonWulf complaining about the weather. Of course, he's on the big island in HI.

    Not on here you dont, I like SOME sympathy when I complain......

    Tho I guess the only really irritating weather we have here is when the rain gods decide to try and drown me at 6000ft.......

    Maunakea/Maunaloa CAN get cold, but its never brutal....30s or so is about as cold as ive ever suffered up there.

    I think it got up to 22 deg. F today according to my digital thermometer. Over a foot of snow on the ground, closer to two probably. Went out on snowshoes this afternoon to change SD cards on the trail cams in the woods next to me and out back. Not much moving at all according to the lack of pictures I got. In deep snow and cold conditions deer do what's called "Yarding" where they congregate and find some sheltered place and generally lay low, and don't exert much energy. They sure aren't moving around much lately or I'd see more tracks and have more pictures. Did get one good daylight photo out back last Sunday, ( Jan. 30th). You can see the snow depth easily; and understand why they aren't too active. WGI_0747.JPG , and why these things come in handy; IMG_4238.JPG ..

    Passed up on javelina hunting this week. Too chilly. Snow on the ground the last two days. It is crystal clear and 18 degrees at the moment and headed for about 9 degrees in the wee hours tomorrow morning. The season runs through March, so it's really easy to just say no when the weather isn't up to snuff.

    Been there done that, I ran a Fire truck in NJ for 10+ hours at 10 degrees, 1 1/2" ice on the running boards. Now live in NC still had some snow last week 2" but gone, two days later.
    I hear the locals wanting snow, I tell them move north, you will get all you want!

    Yeah, the Southerners want snow, but they can't drive in it when they get it.

    I remember Thanksgiving 1975 I was stationed at Fort McLellan Alabama and we got 4 inches of snow and it brought the whole area to a 3 day standstill. I was flabbergasted. They were not equipped to drive in snow and had very little snow plows or salt trucks. Saw many vehicles driving on post with just enough snow removed by hand to see out just the windshield. I pulled a few over and issued tickets as I was an MP at the time. Not much different today my buddy who lives in Georgia tells me.

    I was living in Southern Louisiana in the latter half of the eighties. It snowed for the first time in 25 years when I was there. You would have thought the world was ending. Of course, Southerners make up for the lack of blizzards with hurricanes and tornados.
