Between last season and this years post on here. It seems many felt Nov was hot. So last year after reading thread upon thread about the hot temps and the fact that it was killing deer hunting in November, I Googled the average temperature by month and actually found there are databases out there that show avg temp by month back to 1890 something.

Now I know this is avg temp and does not speak specifically to a certain day. However if you, look at it from the perspective that if there were "truly" more hot days than cold, the avg temp for that month would be higher than say years past. what I found was right in line with what I thought happened last year, which was it was on avg. a COLDER Nov. than years past.

I graphed it and hope you can read it. FYI the temps shown are for Dec. So do not confuse that. the linear trend line does show the avg temp has been increasing over the last 20 yrs, but not by a lot.

Sorry for the graininess. In case you can;t see the Avg temp for Nov 2012 and Dec. 2012 were the same 47.2 degrees.

Oh and as a side note, I know there were some warmer days, in Nov, but there were not that many "bitter cold" days. I think most of the day time highs where around 45, so I don;t suspect the lower than avg daily temp is due to a few extremely cold days dragging the avg down.

I am one of the ones that complains about temps. I guess because I don't get to go much during the week, and I even miss more Saturdays than not because of work.
Your right, this past fall was good weather wise over all. Now I don't keep a detailed journal, but on my days that I got to finally go hunting was way way above normal. Almost weekly, a cold front would come through on Monday night or Tuesday, but by Friday night into and all through out the weekend it was not warm, but hot. I know for a fact this happened to me during my areas rut. The rut around here is probably the first two weeks of December. On both of those first two weekends, it was hot weather, while in the middle of the week it was very cold. Just a very unfortunate deer season weather wise for myself. IT didnt start to stay cold until after the rut in my area.

I didn't think 2012 was particularly hot, other than opening weekend. However, FOR THE DAYS WE HUNTED (15 of the 30 days in November), the high temperature was 4.39 degrees warmer than the average over the last 25 years. However, the low temperatures were 2.95 degrees cooler than average. The higher highs and lower lows indicates dry air was in place during much of November last year.
