But if that's the case, you really should see how quick a coyote runs if you shoot at him and miss. If he runs straight then spring will be early but if he runs like a old Dodge Dart that needs a front end alignment, then you know spring will be late and you should consider May instead of April. Are you following this?
Now this will all go out the window if a gray Owl is hooting on the 17th of February. If you hear a gray owl hooting on the 17th of February, then you just can't be certain if April is going to be warm or cold.
No superstition, it's science. The animals will tell you, you just have to listen. Pass that mason jar back ov'r here will ya.................
