I feel your pain, today a nice 108, a few days ago it was 118, the outside temp when I got in my SUV at 3 pm on that day read 130. (that was sitting in the sun all day. Phoenix AZ
 
in south eastern Australia its about 5c im 45 miles out to sea and its cold this morning ,flat calm ocean but cold .its 0500 and when the sun comes out it will be 12 -14 c by mid morning
 
Been a great summer for us so far. Have only had a day or two that went into the low 90's. Today around 86 and 93 tomorrow. Bruce
 
I,ll gladly take all the heat you guys don,t want we don,t get enough in Minnesota
 
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

wheels,man ,now you're talking
i'll be off to Africa in a weeks time and should be in the bush in 2 weeks time [Limpopo-Tolwe area]

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.

couldn't agree more wheels .
you can always get warm ,but its not always possible to cool off.

Enjoy your month of freedom. Can you hunt in Bahrain? Can you do any spearfishing there?
 
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!
 
37 C in Madrid. Thankfully, it s dry.

Spain, i booked through a consultant, i book almost everything through him now and he's done me right. his contact 724 986 7206 if interested and he will have more info to share,
I hunted elephant with Luke Samaris in 2005. It was my fourth safari and I tell you he is a fine gentleman the best. I got the opportunity to meet Patty Curtis, although never hunted with him but enjoyed our conversation around our tent in the Selous. Very sad for a tough guy to leave this world the way he did. Let’s pray the murderers are caught. I hope to see Luke in Nashville.
