Anyone else Jonesing for fall yet?
Hardly! Summer is just getting started. Chuck
Yup. Summer, with its heat and humidity, is my least favorite season. I'm upset that we didn't really get a spring - we went from getting snow to temps in the 80's inside of a week back in April and it's been mostly hot since. Since we missed out on my second favorite season - spring - I'm really jonesing for my favorite season - fall.
I don't like the summer heat either, spring and fall are my favorites as well. We had a very long slow spring and I loved it! Looks like we have about 2 weeks of upper 80's and mid 90's now ahead of us, yuck, and with high humidity to go along with it. Fall is really going to be welcome this year.
It’s not the heat and humidity so much as I’m ready to stalk through the dark timber and connect with my ancestors! I not a fan of the heat and humidity but you adjust after a few weeks.
Yes! I got drawn for a special permit late buck tag this year for November! It can’t come soon enough.
Sweet! Rut is always a blast
Yep. We are usually lucky to get a shot early season but come the rut we can pass up 5-10 in a weekend. Got drawn 5 years ago and that buck is on my wall.
That's the problem I have - after having had heatstroke, I don't adjust to the heat and humidity. It hit 94 here today. I'll take -10F over this any day.
No Bueno @Sprung
I've been waiting 34 years to adjust too it... lol!
Yea I'll take fall with the color change sitting in my boat on a river steelhead fishing with temps in the 50s any day now...
Well, if any of you THINK it's hot where you're at, I'll trade you my mid to upper 90s with 80+% humidity, inside a metal building, in the Florida sun, with a 6'x2'x1' steam powered wax melter 10' away for the next 7 - 10 days, for whatever you got.
Can’t wait for fall. Drew a nice rut hunt and just picked up a barrel for my 1947 Remington Model 11. Come on bird season.
Show us the model 11. I love old guns as much as old tools.
wax for sealing blanks?
I do as well. I’ll get a picture up. Have nothing against the modern “plastic” guns but there’s just something special about taking a piece of history afield.
Bees wax... I'm a commercial beekeeper, we're extracting at the moment.
Yesterday temps in the building averaged 92 - 95 degrees, heat from the melter seems to hover just a little above the thermometer, and the fan blows it down on you. Was hoping for rain so the bees would go home, temperature would drop, and we could open the door, and cool off some. Rained all the way around us; walk outside, black clouds every direction, radar showing rain mile or two in every direction, overhead... great big patch of friggin blue sky! Finally black clouds rolled over and cooled off a little, we got down to 89 in the building, hung there forever, you think it would rain so the bees would quit flying, and I could open the doors up? OH NO!!! Eleven hours working in a damn convection oven, we're wrapping things up, putting empties in the storage trailer, washing everything down, 7 pm last night... It finally decides to rain!
Today low 81F and high around 96F. Balmy!
I do not like this heat at all.
I don't like the heat either. It's a busy time for us at work. Have to be out in the crap but it has its perks. My view this weekend. Checking fishing licenses and safety equipment.
