Blizzard for Montana's Opener

Well I was hoping to be on the road by now to SE Montana for the opening of Montana's antelope season. But, there is one mean blizzard blowing that started yesertday (Friday Oct 10) and is still blowing and is expected to blow through tomorrow night (opening day). It is supposed to dump 1-2 ft of snow with high winds. As I look out my window right now the winds are at least 40 mph.

It's about a 350 mile trip one way (about 5 1/2 hrs under normal driving conditions), so I will pass this weekend and hope for better next.

Hope all your hunts are going better.

Mark

    Ya, I know what you mean. I'm sitting at home with my truck loaded, ready to go. We are supposed to be in the Big Horns setting up elk camp today. Hopefully it will move out or weaken and we can try it tomorrow. I'm not real happy about it, but I am only one of three people going. If it was up to me, I'd be up there anyway.

    Hey Dana, I'm looking for a nice buck, but not necessarily a trophy, also have two doe fawn tags. I figure the meat will pay for the gas, LOL.

    How much snow did you get out there? I'm heading for Carter County. Did it blow bare and drift?
