    39c in Oklahoma today. Way to hot for me.

    Observe, It is winter somewhere in the world right now. Why aren't we down there hunting instead of up here suffering. I think I hear the baboons mocking us.

    You guys just made me feel pretty good about 31C.
    But tracking Eland in sand in that temp is a challenge.
    3.5L water during one stalk of three hours. 1.5 L before it started.
    Perspiration evaporates so fast you don't realize it is happening.

    5C in the AM at the moment.
    Showers are a little chilly in the tent and then you get into the oven later at 10:30 to 15:00.

    Someone said something about mad dogs and Englishmen walking about in the Noon day sun. You can add crazy Canadians to that list.

    I am glad I am not in that desert north of here. The Kalahari is interesting enough at 31C

    Hello Wheels
    What part of Okie are you in?
    I'm in Northern ok by Enid
    This heat is just to have me in shape for a late hunt in Sept.
    Better than last year with drought and 60+ days over 100degrees F

    I'm officially jealous. Both the temperature and being in the bush. Turn the lights out on a couple of chacma's for me. Make sure and post some pics and write about your hunts. How long of a break do you get before you have to head back to the desert?

    31C interesting? Nah, that's paradise to us 'Zonies. Our morning lows are higher than that, and significantly hotter by 8am.

    K-man, glad to meet another Okie. I'm in Edmond. We have been fortunate this year so far. Not horrible weather yet. You are right, last year was bad. Almost as bad as what Observe has to deal with. Do you come down for the Backwoods show? Where is your late hunt in Sept. going to be?

    Phil, It just means I'm a wimp! Give me below freezing any day. I can always put more clothes on. At some point I can't take any more off. They arrest us in Oklahoma for things like that.

    morning wheels
    i only get 30 days a year away from the desert
    that means that between family commitments and friends,the time for hunting is on a tight schedule!
    as time is limited,i'm going only for warthog,bushpig and baboon this time
    [bow and arrow,handgun and spear]
    hopefully all will went well and there will be some pictures and maybe even a story about it when i got back
    eish, the salt mines hey?

    thanks-looking forward to it [and to feel the cold again!]
    no, no hunting allowed here
    only the royal family hunt with falcons
    next door in Saudi they have opened up a very luxurious super expensive 'canned' hunting for the super rich and royals

    spearfishing is also not on
    because of the enlarging of the island,the contractors are allowed to remove 1,5 m of seabed for the filling-up sand.
    in the process a lot of sea-life habitat are destroyed,as well as a lot fine silt in the water near the coast here in the Persian gulf --not many fish here!
    the substance fishermen and developers are butting heads about it,but money talks!
