Opening Day Rain

5 posts in this topic

Don't know about you guys, but I'm planning for rain. 50% chance of showers where I'm hunting. I've got the parka, but I don't want to overdo it if the temps are in the 60/70's, so I might break out my advantage wetlands rainsuit. The gun is going to need a good oiling if the rain comes.

I'm afraid it could make the hunting miserable. Not the wet part, but keeping the birds grounded.

Anybody else have any other plans or tips for rain?

The silver lining-We could really use the rain to bring a few of the marshes up!

I'd rather have some low clouds and some rain versus skies like we have today.

I dont think rain will ground the ducks. A harddriving rain will, but if its not too much of a down pour, it'll be fine.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
