Hey chief, glad you got some rain. I just checked my extended forcast here, and it's suppose to be much warmer in mid to high 80's pretty much for the next two weeks. Hope I get at least some thunder showers mixed in there. I hate those hot stretches we usually get in September, but it is what it is. Good luck to you this week.

Man those long droughts sure take a toll on everything. I remember last season was pretty rough on the woods. It don't take to many weeks of hot dry weather to really work on the ginseng. Looks like you did really well with your limited season.

hot for sure. Went out yesterday to follow up on my hunt from the day before, and dug I guess about 6 oz. It got hot and actually pretty humid really quick, and the nats were driving me nuts even with bug spray. I decided to leave after about an hour and a half. I think its suppose to cool down next week. Will hit it again, wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of yellow ones laying down by then.
