My dad drew a bear tag in WI and he'll be hunting my land in Rusk County later this week. That area has been absolutely pounded lately and the swamp that is typically dry this time of year now has over a foot of water in spots. That's not good, but at least the bears don't mind getting their feet wet. I'm hoping my dad will connect with a shoulder shot that drops the bear immediately so we don't have to track it in the swamp.
No more rain dances needed - maybe someone could give us a sunny/windy dance instead.
I've had lots of regular rainfalls this summer. Lots of moss, fungus, and mushrooms growing all summer. Water pooled in places I never expected to see it. Swamps are full. Little frogs everywhere. Strange year.
I will officially not be able to hunt at home now after the latest rains. Gonna be a long time before it dries out enough to get back there..... any more rain and I can kiss hunting good bye here.
I tried to go back to plant my plots last week and couldnt get back there then to even plant them. And now more rain on top of that.
When I was a kid, our family had a weinmeriener dog. (see if you can spell it ;)) Anyway.....somehow the door to his dog house from the big kennel got closed up.......and he got hit with baseball sized hail. That dog had welts all over him. Was pitiful sight.
I'm sure the cattle and horses get hammered sometimes. Same goes for wildlife. It's a jungle out there.
