Pretty sure most of the country could use some drought relief. We are farmers so we feel the pain pretty bad here in ks too, it's been months without any moisture here. If the drought don't break, we won't have much to harvest next fall, so that leaves Sep. pretty open for hunting. We were in a record drought here this year, but I didn't think it hurt our antler growth on our deer too much, still saw about the usual amount of good deer. Anybody else notice it having much of an effect on antler growth?
We are leaning on 45 for now, so I don't think we would draw it this year anyways. But...we could get lucky, and it's never too early to start doing my research. Either way, I'll keep building points and going OTC in Co until I draw.
