Hunters have lots of friends. A trusted, well used gun is one. A favorite hound, if he has one, is another. And a solidly built pickup with four-wheel drive is yet another.
But there's one friend that turns up only occasionally, though when it does can produce more game than any other. That's snow, a nice, soft several-inch fall during the day or evening with plans to hunt the next morning. Snow is a friend indeed.
