This was a year ago in February. It was on private property. When I got up the temperature was -10 degrees. After breakfast I headed out of town. When I got to the shooting fields it had warmed to a balmy 5 degrees above zero. But I dressed warmly, the sun was shining, and the shooting was fast and furious. Those big PD's are easy to spot on that white snow, and they make a lovely scene after being hit (red and green every where). As you know, there is a season on PD's now in Utah. It is closed from April 1 to June 16 (breeding season). Gotta have a new supply of target! The good thing about shooting in the winter: No bugs...especially mosquitos & flies, and no mirage to deal with on those long shots.
