I've never tried that - I guess I can see some advantages. But hopefully, if things went bad, most of us could adapt pretty well.

I just don't feel like getting my $500+ piece of metal wet unless I have to. :oops:

I never shoot my guns in the rain. I was once with a few friends who were shooting their guns in the rain and it was pretty funny seeing the raindrops turn to steam when they hit the hot barrel. :lol:

I've duck hunted several times in pouring rain. Does that count? :lol:
Man, getting up at 3am and sitting out in the rain waiting for a duck sure sounds like fun :wink:

It sure does! A cold day with sleet coming down is good too.:-D :-D :-D

I didn't know you were a duckhunter Ship.

We shoot rain, shine, wind, hail, snow, heat, cold, whatever the only thing that slows shooting down is lightning. Lightning has the right of way, everything else is a minor inconvenience.

about any hunting in adverse weather counts. to many don't have practice at shooting wet,cold,scared and effects it can have on aiming. a wet or cold shiver at the wrong time can mean the difference between hit or miss

I was being sarcastic - sorry, it doesn't come across well in text. :oops: :-D

No, I'm not into hunting myself...

No worries. You don't have to hunt to enjoy a brisk morning with sleet or rain coming down waiting for Ducks or Geese. It's something everyone can do. :-D :-D

The sounds of the hunt!

A leaf turning loose and falling through the branches.

Acorns dropping to the forrest floor.

Dew dropping like raindrops.

The agitated barking of a squirrel.

Canada geese honking coming over the tree line.

Gunfire from a distant blind.

If you've never experienced it, words can't convey the feeling.

Bob,
I've heard all those things except one. They are all beautiful sounds. But you must have a lot better hearing than I 'cause I don't think I ever heard a leaf turn loose.:D I've heard claymores going off also, refreshing might work.

And then there's the aroma:


Walking past a farm house in the early morning smelling bacon frying.

Coffee boiling in the pot.

Smoke wafting out smelling of oak and hickory.

Even the aroma of the livestock as you pass by.

Passing by after somebody has potted a squirrel and smelling the smell of burnt gunpowder.

The smell of buck urine scent on your clothes--well, maybe that's going too far. Never sit in front of a space heater with buck lure in you clothes!
