A beautiful sight —  We’re happy tonight — Hawkin’ in a winter wonderland.

What a way to end the year — spectacular below zero morning, beautiful dry powder falling all day long, afternoon high temp of 4 degrees — this is definitely my kind of weather.  Began the New Year’s festivities with an afternoon pheasant hunt with the goshawk — hard to tell which one of us loves snow and cold the best.  Walked a prairie buffer strip and conditions were perfect.  Put up the first rooster within ten minutes, and caught a beautiful ring-neck a couple of minutes later.  For us, it was the perfect way to ring out the old year.  Happy New Year to all.  Let it snow; let it snow; let it snow!
