We’re into the second week of the firearm deer season and the number of deer taken seems to be better this year. With our mild winter and early spring, last year, it was less harsh on the deer herd. The local TV station and area newspapers have displayed some really nice bucks taken by U.P. hunters. The deer should be even more active this week as the temperature and future forecast has become a lot colder. We’re still waiting for our first big snowfall of the year but this week looks pretty good for that. The future weather forecast is showing snow showers for the rest of the week and temperatures below freezing. This is good for all the winter enthusiasts and reality for those that don’t like winter!
If you’ve been super busy and still haven’t bought or made plans for your Thanksgiving dinner, head to the Brownstone Inn (in AuTrain) for a delicious dinner. The Brownstone Inn will be serving a “grandma-style” fixed menu dinner from Noon to 6pm on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25th. Volunteers, from a local charity, will serve the dinner and the proceeds will go to their cause. Call (906) 892-8332 to make reservations as they are highly recommended.
We hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Please be safe on the roads as they’ll probably be slippery here in the U.P. and just maybe the Lions can pull out a Thanksgiving Miracle against the Patriots!
