Chief..

20+ oz, 17 oz, 15 oz... you are doing fine man.

What I hate about hunting in the rain is when you step on one of those sticks or tree root that is running up and down the hill just under some wet leaves and your boot slides downhill like it is on ice. Zip bang... on the ground.

I would rather hunt in the rain than how I hunted last Tuesday... it was HOT (90+) and bad dry.

I went thru 3 bottles of water, and filled up from a small branch again...

When you bend over to dig one, and raise up and your head is spinning about to pass out from heat exhaustion... nothing fun about that either.

Every once in a while I will stop and think... man I am crazy for working this hard at it... but then there is another one... and you keep on going.

Hobbler and Maya, you guys are doing really well. Enjoy the pics you post. Thanks.

TN, LOL I can relate to the stick or tree root that is running up and down the hill just under some wet leaves . I have done the splits before and trust me I wasn't built to do the splits. lol

Good luck guys.

We're getting cooler up here, thank God. We've still been getting up around low 80's during the day, but some nice 40's to 50 at night for sleeping.

I hope I can get back out, but I've got a ton to do in the orchards. Good luck all!
