    More Snow Snoop'n Today In The Tundra......

    Hit a couple more snow hills today while all the Edmonton kids were in school. Did pretty good. Got up to a few degrees below freezing. Very comfortable hunting I might add. I lucked out with a hockey puck and a pile of cold cash. And no more pennies are being minted.

    Nice. Think I'll try a local sledding hill when the weather warms a bit more. I was always scared to take my detector out in the freezing snow. Will the cold wreck my detector?

    I have been hunting in the winter months for many years. The problems usually are with the batteries running low quickly. I have hunted in temps down to about -25c/-13f. The curly aspect of the headset wire loses it's springing qualities and gets very stiff. I sometimes attach hot pacs to the electronics to keep the batteries warm also.

    I did the hot pac a little differently, but it's simpler as the batteries are inserted in a totally different way.

    Basically what I did, was extend the coil wire (I ordered and extension) and removed the electronics from the upper stem. I then attached it to replace one side of an old headset as shown. I wrapped the machine in plastic as assurance in case it got dunked!

    Crazy weather for sure. A few weeks back it got to -40 with the wind, we got rain, then the temp went to +8, then so windy, that we broke an all new record for wind speed. I had to replace some siding which blew off the side of my house.

    Whatever we get, you get it next.

    Good to hear your feeling better. I got the shot this year while I was in hospital for a procedure.
