Anybody affected by this temp drop?

Last week at this time, it was 115 degrees in the morning.  Today it is in the 60's and misty.  Anyone been out yet, and if so, how has it affected you?

It has only affected my desire to be hunting!

This year has found me at work way more than in the field!  I'm usually not that big into early season hunting anyhow, but at least find a way to be in the field at least a couple weekends a month.  This year, with all three of my children playing either soccer or baseball (or a combination of both Yes ), I haven't been able to go at all!  The change in the weather has really bumped my desire to get in the woods!  I think it won't be long before I find a way to squeeze in a morning or evening session between games/practices.  Don't get me wrong, I am really enjoying spending quaility time with my children, there will always be time to hunt!Thumbs up

I am, however, missing the luxury of 30 days vacation a year that I had when I was in the Navy.  :lol:  Dude! I am working more hours now that I am retired than I did during my 22+ years in the service!

That is quite the difference

That is quite the difference in temperature. I bet it is going to help you guys out though. We are finally getting a break out here in Colorado too. We've had some cool mornings with cloud cover. This is a big change from the intense sunshine and 92 degree days we were having for a while. Record breaking heat does not really bode well for any type of hunting. Except for maybe bikini hunting at the pool Yes

We have finally broken the

We have finally broken the dry spell in Colorado. We have been getting some fairly decent rain in the past couple days. It sounds like it is going to dry back up and the tempertures are going to rise again starting tomorrow. Hopefully it will cool back down in time for first rifle season. I know there are a lot of guys with first season elk tags that are wishing for that atleast. Snow... snow.... snow!
