Rain Dance "PLEASE"

This could be the year of waterhole hunting in the southwest, thats if you can find one that doesn't have 10 or 20 hunters already on it.   It is day......... well i don't really know when it rained last here in New Mexico.  I hope it rains in the next month or so cause my antelope hunt is Aug.13th in southern NM and it has been around 107 down in the unit i got a tag for.   Every one start doing there rain dance!!!!

Hunting over a water hole can

Hunting over a water hole can infact be the absolute best way to bag an archery antelope. But be careful you don't dance too much and get a bunch of rain just before your hunt or there will be water everywhere and you will be no better off than you are now as they will be able to get a drink where ever they want to. If you could manage to find a water source no one else knows about you would be really set with the current weather.

Sorry to hear that.  It's

Sorry to hear that.  It's weird, cause here in California, they have officially declared our drought over.  We have gotten so much rain this year.

I think the snowpack in the mountains was 165% of normal, and all of our reservoirs are full.

If you can find a waterhole, it should be fun sitting on it.  Good luck!
