Did the Hills get snow this last wknd? The turkey opener is Saturday. I'd expect its mostly snow free or melting fast but then again it could be like last year...the sleddogs were so jealous! Can anyone provide an update?

Thanks

this 3rd of 3 blizzards in two weeks pounded the hills. My buddy in Custer told me they didn't get a heck of alot. But, the snow pack reports show the Hills are anywhere from 83% to 123% of normal. The view of the Hills this morning from about 20 miles away looked like they are pretty well snow covered from Hermosa to Deadwood. I guess you could call 605-342-3867 and ask the those folks in the sport shoppe. The drifts I have aren't gonna be gone til late May

Paul,

Thanks for the detailed update. There can't be as much snow out there as last year, but then again... Opener '08 the birds hadn't moved up yet. Hope those winter flocks have started breaking up and dispursing.

I would say there is more standing snow right now, than this time last year. Im in spearfish and we have up to two feet of standing snow in town. I would expect more in the Hills. With the warm temps this week it should start melting fast.

Dan, thanks. I don't get into the Hills much being I'm a flatlander. I try to keep up with reports thru the paper and what Mike Moldrick has to say. I'm headed to Angastora Friday to see if those big gals might be on the bite. Ya think Bear Butte will fill up pretty good this year?

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?
