mirage off winter snow

Seems to me that sometimes mirage off snow on bright days can be worst than summer mirage.
Anyone else notice this, or am I just slowly freezing to death when I am out there and start seeing things.

Re: mirage off winter snow

Snow and other white objects reflect light and heat. On a sunny day this may happen. Its not your imagination. Use it to your advantage for detecting wind direction and speed for greater shooting ability.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
