Default Opening wknd wx...

weather models that run thru day 15 almost get us to the opener. End of current runs do break up the persistent much aboves that have been prevalent over TX since 2nd week in August.

Though it cools back to normalish, still not seeing any signs of cool fronts or well below normal temps. Hoping some of our resident mets will weigh in.

I'm hoping the deer stay on the corn and summer batchlor pattern until opening weekend. I may not make Saturday due to a family event but will be there Sunday morning with blood on the brain. It's opening weekend, I expect it to be hot.

This is the ticket used one last week for the first time. Game changer in a blind.

Mine is showing high of 72, low of 52 on 9/26.

Our long term average for Sept 28 is 76/51, so maybe we’ll have a decent opener. It sure has been too hot the last couple of weeks to get too pumped about it!

met at work saying latest model runs showing potential for a front to drop down the 25th-27th timeframe, hopefully it hangs around for a few days.

I'm hoping for at least a small cool front but I'm hunting mornings and evenings whether it's highs of 75 or 100. I've only bow hunted in Texas so I'm used to sweat and mosquitoes during bow season. I'd prefer cooler weather but high temps won't keep me out of the woods.

I will probably only hunt the mornings unless these is a shooter on camera in the evenings. Definitely not going to shoot a doe and mess with it in this heat unless its my sons first deer.

I am not going to bet on the GFS model showing that cool front unless it has a few more days of runs showing same

Iíll probably hunt mornings and evenings. Weather will depend on if I make the 3.5+ hour drive to the lease or just hunt around the house though.

I guess I'm getting softer with age because I no longer hunt a ground blind if it is in the 80's or higher. That often puts me either in a shaded tripod or back in the cabin on October afternoons. I will sit a dove field in the heat - if they are still flying I'll bow hunt in the AM and dove hunt in the PM

Agreed. But we historically have a decent front about that timeframe. Itís landmarked for because itís about the time of the South Plains Panhandle fair, and for as long as I can remember that week has 2-3 days of cool
Rainy weather

For me it's always these last couple weeks of 95-100 degrees that are the biggest beating. We know the change is coming but it seems to take forever to get here. For north Texas the average daily high for the month of October is 78 degrees and October is also 2nd only to May in average monthly rainfall. Come on October!

I just ainít that mad at Ďem anymore to sit out in the heat.

I hate hot weather. Plus it puts a lot of pressure to make a quick recovery in the heat.

wind starts coming out of the north in Houston around the 25th and stays that way thru opening weekend. Unfortunately doesn't catch our place in Shackelford county, still predominantly S winds with highs in upper 80's opening weekend. Hopefully its just a matter of the front needing to shift 100 miles west and we catch a break...
