Third Week of November

On the first calm, freezing day or night after a particular pond or lake reaches 39 degrees throughout, an ice cover will form. The rutting season of the white-tailed deer reaches its peak during the last two weeks of November. Short-tailed weasels are in their winter coats after starting to change from brown to white in October. When white for winter, weasels are often called ermines.
