I’m sitting in a blind sweating...
Thermometer says 96, I would guess 110 in here....
Rather be here than in a 72’ office though....

The older I get the worst the heat gets to me. 30* and ice on the pond sounds outstanding! I think we should go visit longcruise. Lol

Georgia has also been hot. I just can't shoot in the heat like I used to be able to do as a younger guy. 30 arrows or so is exhausting, and concentration is difficult. Tim, I don't see how you can tolerate that kind of heat. More power to ya buddy! Like Fallhunt, I will be glad to see cooler weather.

Hey, I just had a thought and decided to add it in. Wouldn't it be nice to have a range set up in a refrigerated warehouse? That way, we could practice in the same temperatures we like to hunt in? Although it is not practical, it is a refreshingly cool thought.

Sam, if training in a meat locker was good enough for Rocky, it's good enough for me. :-)

I am in. Shot this AM only 28 targets, maybe a hundred arrows. I even took my 45# bows thinking how much the sun sucks the energy out of me. 104 at 1000 came home to A/C. Just not any fun when it’s so hot.
For me it will be end of OCTOBER before it’s decent agian.

I'm sitting in a stand now. Pig hunting. It's 8:20 and 92 degrees. Deer season is August 15th. Should be close to 100.

No didn't see anything. They tore the place to shreds 2 weeks ago but every thing looked kinda old today.but around here nothing says deer hunting like seeing the temp get close to 100. When it does you know opening day is around the corner.

For me it's not the heat as much as the humidity and on the west coast of Florida it gets humid.  Makes a 3D shoot unpleasant.  

Going to Texas on the 23rd.  More heat and humidity.  Hey Tim, what happened to that "dry heat" we hear about?  None of that in Buda.  Frank

agreed Frank, especially this summer it seems....its been 'cooler' with highs in the upper 90s, but the humidity makes it a kicker

I melt/sweat. I can't shoot but about 25 arrows or so before the sweat starts dropping into my eyes.

I've lived and hunted in NY so I know cold.  I worked outside in a cemetery busting frost to get a grave open.  I used to say give me cold over hot but now in my twilight years I prefer warmth.  Sometimes it's uncomfortable when the humidity is high so I hide in the air-conditioned house.  Shoveling sunshine instead of snow.......aahh the life.  Frank
