Daylight Savings Time Ends November 1st

2:00 am


This Sunday, November 1st, remember to push the clocks BACK one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night.  Daylight Savings time ENDS at 2 am on Sunday, November 1, 2015.

Adjust all of your clocks and enjoy that extra hour of sleep and more daylight in your mornings. However, stay safe during early dusk and evening activities— nights will get darker earlier between 5:30 and 7 pm.

Some Fun Facts about Daylight Savings Time 

Courtesy of Farmer’s Almanac

  • Credit for Daylight Savings Time belongs to Benjamin Franklin, who first suggested the idea in 1784. The idea was revived in 1907, when William Willett, an Englishman, proposed a similar system in the pamphlet The Waste of Daylight.
  • The Germans were the first to officially adopt the light-extending system in 1915 as a fuel-saving measure during World War I. The British switched one year later, and the United States followed in 1918, when Congress passed the Standard Time Act, which established our time zones. This experiment lasted only until 1920, when the law was repealed due to opposition from dairy farmers (cows don’t pay attention to clocks).
  • During World War II, Daylight Savings Time was imposed once again (this time year-round) to save fuel. Since then, Daylight Saving Time has been used on and off, with different start and end dates. Currently, Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 am on the second Sunday of March and ends at 2 am on the first Sunday in November.

We look forward to seeing you for an evening of Hollywood Style at this year’s 4th Annual Saddle Up Benefitting Ranch Hand Rescue!

More about Ranch Hand Rescue

After suffering a stroke, Bob Williams knew he wanted to do something more meaningful with his life and established RHR in 2009 to save farm animals from neglect and starvation.

Why a farm animal rescue? While thousands of animal shelters in the US are designed for cats and dogs, Bob recognized a void in facilities capable of sheltering farm animals. In response to that void, Ranch Hand Rescue was created.

Currently, Ranch Hand Rescue continues outreach to develop a “foster family” network critical to expanding the group’s efforts. Since most of these animals are malnourished, they require special diets, supplements and periodic visits by a vet to monitor their progress. In many cases. it’s simply a well-managed feeding program with the proper nutrition, companionship & love that brings these animals back to a state of good health. All of the animals rescued by RHR are evaluated by a veterinarian, given appropriate vaccinations and treated for parasites before being transported to their new foster home. All progress with RHR foster animals are tracked and monitored by veterinarians and the animals’ foster families. The absolute worst cases are brought to Ranch Hand Rescue. In most cases. these animals require round the clock care and surgery. The foster family network gives RHR the ability to not only save more farm animals; it increases the opportunity to provide the immediate medical care and rehabilitation for the most severe cases care for at Ranch Hand Rescue.

While rescuing farm animals continues to be at the core of Ranch Hand Rescue’s work, the organization has expanded its services to provide Equine and Animal Assisted Therapy Counseling programs which serve victims of child and sexual abuse, rehabilitate at-risk youth, and provide counseling for clients facing the challenges of drug and alcohol addiction, depression, anxiety, anorexia, and many other personal, mental, and physical challenges.

4 Tips for Staying Warm in the Deer Stand

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Hunting tower in harsh winter in the Lithuanian fieldLate deer season can be some of the best hunting. Frigid temperatures without proper clothing and equipment can keep even the most dedicated hunter at home. Tackle the cold, fill your tags and take the buck of your dreams this season!

4 Tips for staying warm in your deer stand:

Dress Properly

  • Head- Keep your head and ears warm with a hat, beanie or face mask to block the wind.
  • Neck- Many hunters forget this, but offering insulation on your neck can keep the rest of the body warm. Wear a neck gaiter and you’ll be surprised what a difference it makes.
  • Body- Start your layers with a thin moisture wicking layer of clothing. Then add clothing made of windproof, waterproof and breathable materials. Insulate your chest with a down vest, bibs or a quiet jacket.
  • Hands- They always seem to get cold first! For bow hunting make sure you have a great pair of thin moisture wicking gloves. For rifle hunting wear insulated shooting gloves or warm quiet gloves you can remove before taking your shot. If you’ve tried these options and your still cold, invest in a hand muff so you can easily remove your hands and keep them warm before your shot.
  • Feet- Wear two pairs of socks. The first pair should be made of moisture wicking material and the second pair should be a thick wool sock. Slip on insulated waterproof boots and your ready to hit the cold night air!


Take your time walking to the deer stand

  • The last thing you want to do in freezing temperatures is sweat. Give yourself plenty of time to walk to your deer stand and avoid breaking a sweat. You may need to remove a layer on your way to the deer stand or pack your jacket and take it with you.


  • Yes, you read that right. Move! Don’t scare the deer away, but try flexing your muscles while sitting and slowly move your hands and feet to increase blood flow. This will also help keep you warm.

Bring a Heater

  • There is no shame in running a heater in your deer stand. Safely use propane heaters and make sure they are sturdy to avoid tipping over.


Take these tips with you on your next hunting trip to stay warm. Share your hunting pictures with us and come by for all your hunting needs! Good luck this season and stay warm!
