  • In this heat, how imporant is it to you to Hunt near water holes?

    This last week has been Very Hot here. Luckily up north there might only be some preliminary seasons, but archery hunting kicks off very soon. Given your game animal, location, and weather how important is it for you to hunt near water holes? Does your state have laws against doing this?

    High today is 70° w/scattered showers.
    Too warm to hunt, but not hot!

    We've been pretty dry since mid July, early August. That's pretty much the norm for us.
    Wheat farmers have been running day and night, trying to get wheat pasture in. Most were successful.
    We're supposed to get rain over the next 5 days. Cool and wet and wheat will be "shooting" out of the ground!
    Looking good!
    Planting wheat on me first means the deer will pattern to my wheat first.
    Loving it!

        Sounds like New York and Oklahoma have swapped weather patterns. Hey, you want to trade governors, too?

          Black bears are always around water doing warm weather. Even if it's a neighborhood swimming pool.
          Elk like their elk wallows.
          Temp here today was 75. I had to crawl underneath a house trailer to change a check valve on the water supply line.
          I came out wet with sweat, dirty as pig pen and a few spiders on my work clothes.
          I am getting to old for this young man sh:t. Money is good thou. ?

                Bow season is already open down here in NC. This part of the state, there's so much water everywhere that I don't feel like hunting over it would be that productive unless you had one specific spot pinned down. I've been seeing plenty of deer and haven't been over water.

                If I understand the laws correctly here, you're not allowed to shoot a deer that is swimming, but you can shoot a deer standing in shallow water like a little stream.

                      If they have blue tongue they will be near water. Found a dead one 3 years ago in my creek.
