    December 2, 2019 Steve Suman The North Woods received an abundance (some might say over-abundance) of snow this past weekend. However, this heavy, water-laden snow combining with relatively mild temperatures and sunshine will likely delay some snowmobile and ski trail grooming and degrade already questionable ice conditions. The current forecast ...

In hind-sight if I would have shot that buck I would have not been out in the woods to take the one I did get. I ended up with a very unique 9 point buck (see ph...
