Overall activity status: Exactly one year ago a major winter storm pushed through the Great Plains, leaving snow in its wake and kickstarting major deer activity for the month of October. Well, here we are coming into the first weekend of the month and forecasters are predicting that another winter storm will sweep into the area starting Friday morning. Rain in the south and snow in the north, some of it heavy, will be driven along by high winds. Lucky for hunters, it looks like it will move through fairly quickly. I predict Saturday night and Sunday deer will be stretching their legs and fueling up well into the daylight hours after spending all day Friday hunkered down against the weather.
