Same thing here DPD, seems this rain will never stop. I'm heading north today and hope to get out of the wet stuff and possibly get in a little turk hunting this evening and tomorrow then again on Monday. Tuesday is out last day also. May be doing it with a rain suit on for a little while anyway. I'll update you next week.

Wow you guys have had the rain this year. We could use it down south. Things are mighty dry. Hope you get a chance to get out DPD.

Pouring rain.  Let's see, I used to know what that was.   Sorry about the weather, DPD.  If you could send some of that our way, we'd be forever grateful.  Maybe you'll have one of those "last minute" deals and get ya one!  I hope so.

Man, I wish I could send ya some, I know how dry its been...its the wettest May here ever....flooding and really messy all month...I dont think their is 6 days of no rain the entire month...really bad for turk nesting, I hope they recover...Monday and Tuesday look good right now....Hopefully the big guy will work this time..I've seen him 3 or 4 times but he won't come close enough for a clean shot....I hope he works Monday or Tuesday

Hope you get a chance to get out. We finished last Monday but we've had the same weather here in Western Maryland. Had hail three different times yesterday with repeated tornado warnings but fortunately none hit here. Let us know how you make out!
