Okay, I have to say I'd love to come the E3 but have a real problem. I hate corn flakes.

So, the question is fast becomming, How dry is too dry to hunt this fall in CO? Moreso, what are the projected restrictions for fire? Are any of the forests (Private, State or Federal) closed at this time? What do the streams, lakes and water holes look like? How dry is the forest floor? Dry to more then 5 or more inches down would not be good.

I could go on but I thought you CO boys might have a better understanding of how things are really shaping up.

What's the Sitch?

Hey Charles,

I hate corn flakes too!!

Up until 3 weeks ago, we were under a Stage II fire ban. Then a monsoonal weather system moved in from the Gulf of Mexico. The fire bans have been lifted (for now) and it is greener than I have ever seen it here. It has been raining like crazy every afternoon and State Hwy. 67 just north of us is closed down for who knows how long due to flooding. Most reservoirs are at 130% capacity and lakes, ponds and streams are at their peak, if not overflowing. We're still under our average annual rain fall due to the extra dry winter and spring, but these latest deluges have the water supplies brimming and the vegetation vibrant and alive.

Go figure :rolleyes:

Anyway, the elk and deer ought to be fat and shiny on all this thick, lush grass. The mosquitoes too. :doh:

What's it like up in your necks of the woods Huck and Bruce?
Elk: it's what's for dinner!

:D Charles, I think you're worried about having to cross Beaver Dams in the dark!
Seriously, I was watching the reports and wondered if the dry conditions would alter E3 . :worry:

Charles:

it was dry and now its soggy. what will it be mid sept? heck it could be 5 inches of snow LOL...
honestly its green and lots of grass.

Pull it back a bit.

Yep, lush and green here. It will be a banner year for antler growth! The top points on the elk should be long and massive. I really look forward to crossing a few beaver dams in the dark!
