It sure enough is brutal out there in the heat. But there's no way I could stop shooting until the fall.

Get out the sweat rags boys, there's powder to burn! (A cool eighty degrees would be nice.)

We had 95 in southern Mn yesterday. I don't know how you southern boys get use to it. Give me 10 below zero anyday.

95 yesterday and 93 today. Then the storm came in and it is raining and the temperature has dropped to 73 which is much more comfortable. Looking forward to September when it starts to cool down again.

I sort of think that 80 is just down right pleasent. Of course any more I think anything below 20 is on the chilly side of life

Those black flies are what I hate. The mosquitoes only bother me when I am trying to sleep and they want to play music in my ears. But them black flies, I've seen them waiting outside at the picnic table for me to come out so they can chase me around the yard.

Here in Charlotte we have not seen 90 yet. Mid 80s is about it so far. As long as the humidity is down mid 80 are fine by me.I think I would shoot early in the morning before I would quit altogether.I like my 4 seasons down here; a super long cold winter would start getting to me after a while.
