    Fantastic finds. It's funny but the first picture reminds me of the pike poles we carried on our fire trucks.
    My wife does all the driving, I just hold the steering wheel!

    Three remarkable finds in a remarkable year, Dave! I hope you're having a relaxing holiday season. Hunting still or is it frozen there?

    Hey Drew, happy holidays! The weather here is very similar to Seattle. Foggy and rainy with temperatures usually in the 40's. Doesn't get below freezing very often and then usually for only a few hours. We haven't had any snow yet this season.

    PERFECT! We've had plenty of snow and temps down in the single digits...BUT we've had some really warm temps this week so the woods are hunt-able. I went out on my property today to test it, but only a few shot gun shells for my effort. The fields are frozen solid and snow covered. I'm looking forward to your trip round-up post! ...if you ever come home
