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.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
