in west central Illinois we have a foot of snow on the ground and -8 temp. it makes it tough to train but I do singles and the dogs manage to dig them out. but about a half hour is all I can stand after that we are all ready to quit. I just checked the weather in anchorage Alaska and it's 17 degrees warmer there. how is every one else doing on training? if it doesn't warm up soon I would think it will affect some of the early hunt tests entry's.
