    Default Hunting in the rain.....Again

    I'm older than I care to admit, but Thank God I don't feel as old as I am.

    Was nobody to take me hunting when I was little, so I was driving age before I ever got to go deer hunting...Just something I wanted to do and I taught myself.

    47 years since then and I haven't missed but one opening day, that was from taking my oldest son on a moose hunting trip to Manitoba...Never missed a closing evening...If I live until sunset tomorrow, that will be another one...Most seasons I didn't miss a day, going morning or evening, lots of times both, and sometimes all day.

    But I have NEVER,....EVER,....And I mean EVER, hunted in so much %*,%^#@! rain in my $%&*!#@*&<>! LIFE.....!!!!!

    Come July or August I may be praying for rain, but right now I'm praying for it to stop.......

    This has been the slowest season for me ever... every wma that I hunt is under water. I got enough meat for the freezer, but I can count on my hands and feet how many I have seen from the tree.

    Yep not to mention the damn mosquitos are back.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    We had the thousand year flood, Hurricane Matthew, T.S. Irene and now the rains of 2018. That is an insane amount of water in the last few years.

    I try to make it a point to never complain about rain.. but I'm ready for some vitamin D, and flip flops. Give it about three more weeks, and I would be happy if the highs were in the 80s till summer.

    I can and have shot plenty of birds in the rain this year, but my sweet ass will only deer sit in a tower stand in the rain.

    Only second year in 32 years I will go with no kill. Hunted a grand total of 5-6 times, least amount ever. That drive wasn't there this year.
