Looks like a SE wind tomorrow morning - with rain :(

4 posts in this topic

Was just out to the National Weather service website and it looks like a SE wind tomorrow until about 4 PM, then swinging around to the north. I'm pumped to get out but I don't like bowhunting in the rain, not that I can't wear my camo rainsuit but I hate the idea of getting a shot and then having the rain wash away the blood trail. But it sure would be fun to be butchering a deer on Sunday during Sid time!!! To be a bow hunter you have to be an eternal optimist as in 'this is the time they'll walk by my stand'!!!

Good luck all!!!

I hear ya BlackJack. I will likely be in one of my pre-setup ground blinds if its raining. Would be pretty sweet to take one opening weekend. This is only my second year but last year I could have had a chance to get one if I would have been patient and waited on stand longer. Dang mosquitoes were biting the heck out of me - even with the repellent. So I jumped two deer and stopped a doe and her fawns in their tracks on the walk back to the truck. : P

A south wind would be the worst for my favorite stand.

I'll probably have to use a pop up blind instead.

Chuck34 I think the thermacell works the best in a blind.

It kept them out earlier this year for me when the kids and I camped out.

Of course there are 10 times more mosquitoes now.

It's a terrible wind for our opening day spots, but one of the stands they can come from almost anywhere, so that's where I'll be. Hunting out of permanents in big oaks, if it doesn't rain real hard, you stay pretty dry in those.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
