Yeah, I have that problem out

Yeah, I have that problem out here too.  The only difference is that we don't get the mugginess and the bugs that you get in the south.   I spent 5 months in Charleston in the 90's, but luckily it was from Oct to March.

Hang in there.  Deer gotta move sometime......

Dont have that problem out

Dont have that problem out here anymore, its been in the low 50's and raining in the lower elevations and snowing like mad up in the hills, we have had something like 4.5 - 5' of snow above 4000'. yesterday was dry but now the wet stuff is back for the next 7 days atleast. the ski resorts out here are loving it and plan to open this weekend.

It is a little warmer than

It is a little warmer than normal but not too bad.  I wore long underwear and layers with a light jacket yesterday.  I took off the jgloves, acket and hat at noon because it warmed up, but by three it got chilly again and I put it all back on.

illinois now

I am in illinois now... It was cool yesterday and this morning

I was layered up early with hat and gloves

Sitting in stand now and it is very warm - mid 60's probably

I scouted a little this morning and worked up a sweat bad enough that I had to shower at noon before I came and got in the stand

I will be here a week and I think it is going to warm for a few days and then rain and cool down

We will see how it goes!

I'm just up the road in North

I'm just up the road in North Carolina but it hasn't been that warm here.

Saturday it cooled off some for a pleasant afternoon. A little windy but still cool temps.

Sunday evening was great. It was cool enough to wear the gloves and long underwear while out hunting. 

Monday morning should be another good morning. Maybe the bucks will be moving more with this cooler weater.
