The process of a lake icing over is not always a continuous one. Ice begins to form, but may recede or break up with warming temperatures, a strong wind or both. Subtle currents, underwater springs, a trickle of stream in-flow, even a beaver's underwater highway from its lodge to the shore, can affect ice thickness.  PineandLakes.com Illustration

Al's rifle was chambered for the 30-30 Winchester caliber, which dates to 1895, about a decade older than the .35 Remington cartridge fired by the first deer rifle I owned. That said, the 30-30 Winchester is still being used today, and it's a safe bet that more whitetail deer have fallen to the 30-30 than to any other caliber. PineandLakes.com Illustration
