Temps in my area are going to bottom out near freezing with 80-100% chance of rain/snow. Reminds me of last year's closer in 25 when I arrived to 5" of snow on the ground then it snowed another foot overnight into Saturday. Bring your thermals and rain gear boys and girls!

Good luck Jordan! Hope you kill one.
Setting up camp on Saturday in WY ... going to be wet for sure, but next week is looking better. (I hate the rain)
This is what we woke up to yesterday morning in southern WY. To answer the question before it's asked...yes it sucked!!!
I love bowhunting elk in the snow. My area has been oddly slow and I have been tossing around moving for the last weekend or sticking it out. Decided to stick it out due to getting to spend time with some buddies. I'll take a weather change and the possibility it shakes things up with elk and people movement. Since its been slow, it can't hurt.
Looks miserable. I've only been snowed on badly while elk hunting one time, September 3, 2001 in SW Montana. A date that will live on in infamy...lol.
I like AFTER the snow storm when the elk start moving and you can see tracks. Last year it just kept snowing. Went out and ran a loop through a good area, no tracks other than another hunter who was doing the same thing, and within 1/2 hour my tracks were almost filled up to where you could not tell I had passed before. That sucked.
