Big weekend plans for a very nice forecasted weekend. I had plans to hit 2 fair fields and a good park that I have hunted many times in the past on Saturday. Hotel and then a casino close by and then Sunday meet with a freind in the area to check out 3 giving parks he knows about.

And then they change the forecast to 2 to 5 inchs of snow with 30mph winds starting at 1:00am Sunday, I didn't see the forecast change until it was to late to cancel the hotel. There was no way I was hanging around just to drive back in a snow storm so after 7 hour of hunting I made the long drive back home Saturday. Bummer but it happens.

Four hourd hunting the well hunted fair field netted me a 1928 Buff and 5 wheats. 2 hours at a old shut down school got me 1 Great Brittian penny, was very suprised at the date once I got it home and cleaned up. Lastly a hour at a first time park got a little clad.
