this year was my first with a flintlock. i got out wednesday night and thursday night for less than 4 hours total. i figured id better do it because i wont get to on saturday. im new to black powder this year and i dont want to deal with wet powder yet. i sat down next to a field wed. and had 4 does come out at about 6:30 @ 50-75yrs but i couldnt see my sights good enough anymore.
Don't get too worried about it yet....I took today off to hunt and told my wife once the monsoon gets here I'll quit hunting and start on some chores...Rain starts around Noon with wind..so I climb down and come home.
It is now 3:40 and things aren't bad at all, haven't been much of anything since about 1:30 , last time I listen to what the weatherman says, I try to be nice and score some points on the homefront based off his miserable forecast...and it looks like a great evening here for hunting. Now I am pretty grumpy...
Anyway, I think tomorrow is going to be damp and cloudy, but I am not betting on the rain this time. Wife can hunt for two hours in the AM, the boy for a few , but ME I ain't coming in at all!!!
