    I just got back from a deer hunt for the last couple days, and driving thru the local mountain pass that is about 35-40 miles south of me, (elevation approx 2,600 ft), it appeared that there's been at least 4-5 feet of snow thru there so far at this point (October 16th), because the snow berms along the road are already as high or higher than the hood of my truck,... :bluebounc:redbounce:D

    I came thru both times at night, so the pictures are crappy,... the flash didn't want to work right on my camera,.... plus the wind chill up there was about -20° to -25° tonight, & I wasn't dressed for that,.... maybe if I go back down thru there in a few days, I can get some shots during the daytime,...

    I just pulled into a couple of turn-outs to takes these,... but you couldn't run off the road anymore up here even if you wanted to,... :salute:

    P.S. Before someone asks,... the "white-light" bars that you see are the reflective tape that's on the snow poles that all along the highway, so DOT plows can see where the edge of the highway is during blizzard conditions. (reflection from the flash on my camera)

    That bumper has been the best plowing accessory I've ever found,... got more light shining backwards than forward,.... I have no idea what it cost new, but got it for $100 a couple years ago at Dean's Auto Salvage,... prsport

    Ok, since it's my thread, I can high-jack it,.. haha. The only deer in Alaska are the Sitka blacktails, which may be one of the smallest species in North America, but a bag limit of 5 helps to make up for it. There's nothing wrong with moose or caribou, but these little deer don't take 2nd place to anything I've ever tried, that's why I always make the effort to go get a few. :salute:

    Not at all,... this bumper has worked out so well, that I'll always have something like it as well on any future plow trucks, even if I have to make one from scratch myself,... :waving:

    :nono: No snow dance yet. I still have to get a foundation in and my new plow isn't here yet! Oh, and my new skidloader tires are on back order, if I have to go push snow with the ones that are on it, it will look like a pig on ice skates

    well the ground is pretty frozen down here and high temps getting close to staying below freezing...all we need now is a low pressure for some snowwwwww
