Default Hot weather tactics.

I usually give up the hog hunting when the weather gets hot, but have spot lighted them from time to time. I tend to focuse on bowfishing and regular fishing during the hot months. Whatare some of yalls hot weather tactics?

That's it Burnie, it just gets to hot down here(90's) for hog hunting, maybe on some cool nights! Yep, this time of year is all about fishing.

i always think about going during the summer months but when i actually go the heat is unbearable. i find myself sweating profusely and becoming dehydrated easilly. if anyone has any tips forgetting through the heat it would definately be helpful.

Summer is the best time down here as the heat drives em in to the water so you don’t have to search for them all over the place. Where I hunt in QLD it is between 40-50 degrees in spring/summer and if the pigs aren’t in a wallow there usually within 50m of water, it might be damn hot sweaty work not to mention dry and dusty as well but when sneak up on a water trough or billabong and find a mob 70 pigs waiting or even just 3 or 4 big ones then it makes any discomfit well worth while it in my book.

Burnie that goes to show us the pigs are smarter than we are.. I like to bow fish summer nights too. I am going start some milo souring for my lake house at Possum Kingdom. I can throw a gallon at a time around the dock and within an hourthe carp start their water aerobics . Gar come in too to see what is going on.

Hey Mate, are you talking Celsius or Fahrenheitdegrees? Down here it gets 90-95* fahrenheit and in the swamp it's even higher.
