NOAA continues to call for a “record winter” in regards to cold temperatures and snow accumulations on the “valley floors” of several areas in eastern Washington.

This year reminds me so much of the 2018/2019 winter.

We didn’t have any cold weather until the last few days of January and then the bottom fell out of it.

I have my doubts this year, however.

I haven’t followed Cliff Mass since 2019 due to his political agenda.
He can however, provide valuable information.

I sure hope not. I hate when the cold and snow hangs around until April or may. I enjoy it during hunting season but by April and may, I am ready for the warm up.

Feels like 18/19 to me too.

What is Cliff Mass political agenda that turned you off to him?

He has turned into a liberal
But I’d rather not thread jack.

He’s a good meteorologist. He denies climate change.

Gobblers strut , gobble , and chase year - round...at least that is what I see in the flock of 150 in my yard. The hens pay no attention and just fight among themselves.

This is correct. Turkeys do turkey things all year. I hope we don’t have yet another late heavy winter storm. Screws over my shed season

Agreed.  But a little optimism at this point is a good thing

You should be optimistic. After a few really
Mild winters and the short turkey season last year theres a ton of birds around. Considering the number of jakes I saw this last spring/fall it’s going to be a pretty epic season. If the king lets us hunt...

In my logging years, the winters of 1978 and 79 were like this, Loved it!  never packed a snow shovel.  The winter of 80 made up for those two years!! :chuckle: :chuckle:

If I was you, I'd check back in with him. He blasted the BLM riots in Seattle and Seattle govt this year. Blasted public radio stations that cancelled him.because of his views against the extreme left. Hes about as center stream I think as a guy can be that works for UW.
