Some of Best Hunting Conditions Wyoming has ever seen

It is remarkable what a difference weather can make in a hunting season. 

Here we are in mid October, still enjoying some of the best fall weather any of us can remember. We have had day after day of sunny skies, hardly any wind and temperatures in the mid sixtes and even low seventy degrees. When we had this type of fall weather, my father used to call it an “Indian Summer”. An “Indian Summer” is defined by Wikipedia as “a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in temperate regions of the northern hemisphere.”

It never ceases to amaze me how much of an impact weather has on a hunting experience. If you have been following us on our social media, you have seen many smiling faces holding really good antelope, big bears, nice mule deer and some damn good elk. Take special notice and look at the sky and the background in the pictures. It has been all blue skies, no snow and the hunters aren’t bundled up in heavy winter parkas.

As you all know, all hunts are impacted by weather. When it is as nice as it has been this fall the impact is all good. Our guides aren’t fighting mud and getting trucks stuck, saddling horses with frozen fingers or soaked and cold from wet snow. Don’t get me wrong, we still have plenty of season left and I am sure we will experience some tough conditions before its over with, but we are certainly cherishing and welcoming this extended “Indian Summer” weather. 

Wyoming and Montana’s autumn colors have been off the charts this year. The willows, cottonwood trees and aspen groves have all turned a magnificent array of classic fall colors while highlighted by the rich evergreens they are dispersed though. The results are absolutely stunning scenes of various fall colors. Enjoy the video and get a taste of what SNS clients and hunting guides have been enjoying this fall.
