Jeremiah Haas: Recent cold and snow in Illinois a reminder of nature’s resiliency

As I sit here, it is the last day of the Illinois bow season, my deer summer sausage and sticks supplies are already running low, and I’m looking out the window at the worst weather conditions we have seen in several years.
