Snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was up hunting today and got back to the truck to early to call it a day, but to late to make another hunt so I farted around a lil bit.







And last but not least....... My 55mph BlackTail Doe mod. You cant buy this stuff like this.

What you need is as follows:

Drive around wooded areas known for deer.
Find deer in woods.
Go 55 MPH.
Hit it.
Rinse and repeat.

I have been very lucky to not have hit one yet. I've hit a pheasant, a skunk, and a rabbit, but not a deer. I can't WAIT!

No figure its a lil incentive to build a winch bumper. Its driving me nuts to have a winch sitting in the shop and not on the truck

Thats a start.

This stuff was that wet greasy heavy stuff. Compresses down and you dont sink much "at first", then you find a soft spot and are phucked. I was dragging my rear diff in part of it.

Yeah, that's what we got for about 2 hours at the job site. There was enough to just kind of blanket the bushes and tall grass, but not enough to stick on the roads. At home, it rained, and in the next town over, it only snowed for about 5 minutes.

I'm driving the Ranger tomorrow just in case we get more. Better tires, LOL!

I have a company truck/gas card that I drive at times as its got half the companys tools an everything. Its been parked at the jobsite for a while now.
It has a nice lil trick of freezing up the windshield wipers right when you need them the most. Told the boss man this summer that it needed fixed by the rainy season or I'm drivin the ranger an he can find a different way to haul everything. Hence the chevy is sittin on the jobsite.

Oh the MTZ's rocked. That greasy stuff was ll smashed down, I fell on my azz when I walked on it. But they gripped wayyyyyyy better than I had hoped

I'm just surprised nothing else was busted. She was broadside and I centered her at 55mph. She was tall enough I figured the grill at least was goona be toast.
