Default Looks like some relief is coming!

Hard to put much stock in a forecast beyond a few days but it looks like north Texas is finally going to get some relief from the triple digit temps. Starting Thursday they are predicting a string of highs in the upper 80’s and low 90’s with significant chances of rain through the end of the month. Yeah I know it might wash out opening weekend but at this point I’ll take it!

At this point, I think we will take it. Hell I’d hunt in the rain just to hunt and just to not feel 100°

Late season is normally just as good if not better anyway. And the birds are fat.

Got about 15 minutes of what I’d call maybe a half-way decent rain in Lee County earlier this afternoon. I looked all over the house to see what was making “that noise” before I finally figured it out.

This^ And, the cold weather is perfect for the birds to be in a tight group on the ground

I hunt hard all the month of September (3-4 3 day weekends worth)....from DFW to the Panhandle to SoTX x2 this year (white wing special and regular open this year). Late season to me is December-January. October I'm bowhunting. Late season is hit and miss....food is usually scarce at my places and they have been hammered pretty good by us.


I say all that to say....bring on the rain and that's a first for me. LOL...I hate late August /September rain..

These cool fronts might be good for dove hunting. Might push them big fat Kansas red legs down sooner and in bunches. Only seems to happen about once every 10 years. Maybe this year is it?

Truth, and I would lean on WAY better.

We always hunt between Christmas and New Years and it can be insane.

A lot more predictable too.

Rockport has been getting rain all day. I'll update when I look at the rain gauge in the AM.

One of the best dove hunts of my life was on I milo field in the rain under bright yellow umbrella. Don’t be scared to dove hunt in the rain.
