Archery opener weather

14 posts in this topic

Just curious what kinda weather everyone is hoping for on archery opener. I don't know much about this but would think that cooler weather would get the deer moving and feeding more. I know for sitting in the stand 50-55, partly cloudy and a 5mph straight breeze sure sounds nice.

LOL. What I hope for and what I get on opener have never aligned.

Prediction: high 70s and muggy with a chance of rain.

For Western WI this weekend, your prediction seems close.

In Northern MN there should be a cold front coming through and highs around 60 with a chance of rain. Of course lows in the 40s like they have been nearly all summer. The morning hunts will be beautiful.

Doesn't look like we'll get that hard frost.

Things can change in a week and a half. As long as its not the day after a big front moves thru and you have 30 mph winds for 2 days - I'll be happy.

I'm hoping for 95 and humid for about 10 days straight after opener!!!!

I'm getting sent to the other side of the globe for work, so if I can't hunt I don't want anyone else hunting either!!! smile

i dont think i could hope for frost yet, since we have beans that need more maturing to do.As much as i love to bowhunt sitting in the stand with swarms of them little blood suckers i sometimes wish for a frost early. i did get a thermacell this year my son says they work great as others have said on here. but i will be hoping for a cool dreary opener, GOOD LUCK ALL

I won't make it out, its my parents 40th anniversary, and we are having it outside, so, I'm hoping for 75, sunny, and pleasant with very little wind. Everything down here in SEMN seems to be about 2 weeks ahead of schedule, accept the crops, they seem to be about two weeks behind. Going to be an interesting fall. Leaves are already showing significant fall colors, bucks are already scraping. Have heard that from numerous reliable sources. If its not too hot, I'll get out opening week for hunting/scouting. Hopefully the nights start dropping into the low 40's upper 30's. Then I won't be sitting on the stand sweating, I hate that.

I'm hoping for steady rain. Last year it was raining and I had the public land I hunt almost entirely to myself.

I may try to find a good skeeter patch just to try out my new thermocell. I just hope it works as good as they claim. My bowhunting spot is close to a swamp this year. I just know the little monster are going to eat me alive.

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
