huntin' pressure vs. barometric pressure

Postby mark hay » April 5th, 2009, 1:55 pm

weird sounds coming from hunters attempting to call turkeys .
weird sounds coming from 50-100 mph winds.
sudden , loud noises coming from hunters , and lots of flying debris.

Hey Mark,

Birds here have had a real tough year so far. We've had a terrible ice storm that kept the ground covered for a week or so, very cold temperatures and more snow than is usual here. It's also been very windy and now it's very wet and muddy in many places.

Tomorrow is the first day of the first season here and it's supposed to be in the low 30's and maybe some snow. The tough life of the turkey and the tough life of the turkey hunter.

Thanks,
Clark

Our archery season is already open here, with our youth hunt starting this Saturday, and the regular gun season starting next Saturday.
 
The place I'm going to be hunting has got approx 12" of snow on the ground from a storm last week, and a blizzard over the weekend.
 
It's supposed to start warming up to the 50s and 60s this week, but there's still gonna be white stuff on the ground, especially on the north sides of the hills, atleast for a week or two yet.
 
Gonna be out there though.

 . . And you wake up every morning with the neighbors coming home to roost-- the owls that eat your children.  And after you wake up you gotta put up with a girlfriend that has a voice that sounds like fingernails on a blackboard. She has an ugly blue head covered with hair.

If it were me, I'd be glad to walk into a face full of pellets-- I'd walk in laughing.
