    Hey Guys With all this RAIN! What your out look for the up coming Deer Season.

    The under growth is really thick so it should be a bad hunting summer for the coyotes.
    Last time at camp I saw several full grown and a couple fawns. Lots of ticks and mosquitoes as well.

        49 straight days of 100°++ temps.

        No rain.
        2012 - 30 days of 100°+ temps.
        No high temp records broken.
        Only 5 110°+ days.
        "Some" rain.
        2013 - 12 100°+ days. So far!
        No temps in excess of 110°. So far!
        July had above average rainfall, but the local reservoir is like 14 feet low!

        Fawn survival rate is up.

          Around my area of Central Michigan we should have a fairly good year. Anything will have to be better than last year. We had a bad case of EHD last year with no rain at all. This year has been completly different with quite a bit of rain, the lakes and rivers have all gained some water. Crops are all growing very well, with deer slowly starting to fill back in where some many deer were killed off by EHD last year.

            We have had over 40 inches of rain since January 1. Normal for my area would be 48 inches or so for the year. Fawn survival looks good and surprisingly so does turkey poult survival. The mast crop looks to be spotty. Body condition of observed deer is good to very good. If one can find acorns or has productive food plots they will have deer opportunities in mid Georgia.

              It's been a nice lush summer here in PA and my trail cameras tell me the the bucks' antler growth has responded well to it. Can't wait to get on stand, it's looking like a banner year here.

                  Things are pretty lush here in MN after a very wet spring. Lots of farmers did not get crops in or got in late so the ag land hunting will be a little different. I did see some sign when I was building ground blinds in the last couple weeks.
                  Up North hunting promises to be good and we expanded our food plot just a bit this year. I cleared and seeded another 1/4 ac this weekend and built some more ground blinds there too.
                  It is going to be a buggy early season unless we get a freeze. Skeeters and deerflies are pretty thick.
                  Good hunting to you all.

                    MD - Crops are lush and tall. HUGE deer population this season as most of the does seem to have had triplets. Several shooter bucks on cam already. I expect good antler growth, heavy bodies, and plenty of targets.

                    VA - Oaks look to of had a decent bloom, so maybe a good crop to come. Some big bucks caught on camera already www.deer30outdoors.com/hunting/deer/trail-cam-gallery/ (more 2013 pix at bottom of the page)Hopes are high.

                    GA - Redlands WMA www.deer30outdoors.com/redlands-wma/ is always high pressure hunting. Although the deer sign is up, bow hunting temps are usually in the 90 degree plus range and an early rifle season gets them running scared. I hope to secure some pvt land hunting this season which may improve my chances.

                      My question is will it be cold and snow, or, wet and warm? Wonder what the farmers almanac says?
                      Two seasons ago I was hunting black powder season Jan,2012 in a lightweight shirt jacket.
                      Some years it has been -10.
