Ready for October!! Skeeters, ticks, leaves, briars

Shoot it hasn't even got hot yet and I'm so over summer hunting. Lots of coons, tracking conditions are great, I just don't like it..

I've hunted 9 of the last 11 nights and man the skeeters and other bugs are bad.. Just complaining about first world problems..

October is coming and things will get right for a few months.

What about poisonous snakes and around here now hog hunters with night vision scopes. It was just deer and turkey hunters for awhile. Now they are paying big bucks to shoot a stinking hog at night.

todayís the first day we got rain in 7 weeks, two weeks of 100+ degrees and high winds, snakes, chiggers, ticks are out bad this year. Between dry hot weather and it getting dark so late havenít had the want to go. May turn out early one morning the coming week and get my fill for the month. Of course the rain comes right after we cut all the roads in but itís needed. Crops sure needed the rain they are all but burnt up.

Summer hunting

As I have gotten old, I absolutely detest summer hunting. I hunt from October through March and that's enough for me. I just don't like the bugs snakes and poison ivy oak much less the heat. Now when I was younger nothing stopped me, I hunted 12 months a year, don't know if it's the old age or maybe a little wiser these days. Lol. Dave

I donít know how you southern boys handle the summer. Iím not afraid of snakes, but I have a healthy respect for them 😱.

I just canít let mine sit in the kennel. If Iím home Iím hunting. But I sure am whining about it every night.

I can tell you for a southern boy it stinks, but it sure is a good way to lose some weight! Better than any gym around!

Whining and complaining are part of hunting. We brag when we have good hunts and complain when they are bad. The rain, heat, cold, bugs, snakes just make us appreciate the good times. It just wouldn't be any challenge if every night was a good night. What kind of man just sits home on the bad nights and cherry picks the good nights for hunting? Where is the challenge in that? Y'all must really be getting old. First thing that you know, the good night's will get fewer and fewer. And your weight will go up and up. Suck it up and hit the woods. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. Sitting in the woods or on the tailgate complaining is a lot different from sitting in your air conditioned living room complaining.

Don't know about where ya'll are at but for me the ticks are really down this year. I ain't seeing near the amount of ticks that I normally do.

Tick numbers are low here too. Think they washed away. We got 7 1/4 " of rain in 48 hrs this weekend.

We were hunting just about every night except Sunday until May 1 when my 18 month old female that is doing great got snake bit. I never worried about snakes until she got bit so weíre done until it turns cool itís just not worth loosing a good hound to a snake.

Ticks

I slowed down a bit since I pulled 14 ticks off of me in one outing! Their bad here down deep south this year!
