We were supposed to get snow last night, and today. Once have a few inches it usually crust enough placing the decoy will get easy. Our last snow melted to bare ground mostly then froze hard. No subzero yet. Keep warm!

LOL, I was sitting enjoying the fire about noon, on the computer by the window, watching it snow. Whitetail busts out of the brush with a big coyote on her tail. She runs through the front yard, and down into the lower part of the property. He stops at the brush line, but now I'm interested. The weather wasn't as bad as imagined, but still couldn't pull him from the brush.
With your tripod idea it clicked that my partner has about a 12" tripod. This thing has followed us for 25 years nobody remembers where it came from. We've packed it to move a half dozen times, stored at my house when he got divorced, and vice versa. Totally useless until now, we've stepped over it, moved it griped about it, threatened to throw it away. Punch line 2 old guys rummaging through boxes, shops, garages, etc. saying I know the damn things here somewhere. Well these new "gorilla" things are about 10 bucks, and one leg can wrap around a sage brush if we get a serious Wyoming wind.
A BC guide/friend reports -40 for their trapline hunts, I checked an online calculator and oddly enough -40C = -40F. After a certain point it's just cold in any language.
