I look forward to my "bow rut hunt" each year. Regardless of the rut forecast, I like to hunt at least 3 days immediately preceding the MN firearms season.
My firearms season is November 8-16, so I'm all jacked up to bowhunt Nov. 5-7.
Here is the forecast:
Nov 5 - low 49 / high 61. 50% chance of freaking T-storms!! 20 mph wind
Nov 6 - low 37 / high 50. 60% chance of T-showers. 14 mph wind
Nov 7 - low 27 / high 39. 50% chance of showers. 14 mph wind
Good news is the corn was just harvested today....and the forecast for gun opener looks good 24-36 degrees with possibile snow.
Any words of encouragement? I was planning to hunt dark to dark, but if it rains, I'm pretty much hosed. I do have a ground blind that I can use.
