Oh I know. Critters are tough and nothing if not resilient. Would still think SOME must succumb to weather like that.

Stay safe folks.



You park the truck and get out the skidoo.
Deep snow restricts animals movements and hunting sucess making them easier to catch.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

That is why the most northern areas of the North American Continent that have whitetail deer Canada and Maine have huge whitetail deer because only the most fit and healthy animals live in those conditions .And as a rule because the amount of prey species is less the amount of predator spies is also less

Worked myself back to the barn by scooting tractor backwards with front bucket.......1 foot at a time.

Solution? Tractor tire chains. Put those on and something is going to move. Putting chains on tractor now an annual event. Sometime after thanksgiving, pick a warm day and chains go on, and stay on till March.

Second trick.......tractor blade now fitted with 2 inch steel pipe on blade edge. Will not dig and gouge gravel or grass......skims along.......pinches snow to pop up to be rolled off to the side. The two combined will handle anything MO is ever going to get.

We hope!

I imagine it would be easier to handle cold temps than 6' of snow.

Nothing new for western NY, they’ve lived threw lake effect like this before. It’s just people are more and more less self reliant today. Just watched news report about it, showed cars covered in snow with the street plowed, and reporter said, she didn’t know how they would get the cars out. Jesh, All it takes is a snow shovel, walk behind snowblower, and some ambition.
