    Mother Nature must be against turkey hunting this year....snow, wind and cold last weekend and 1-2" of rain possible this weekend. Are you kidding me!! Apparently there is a low pressure coming from the west which is going to hook up with the warm southerly flow of air resulting in....rain/thunderstorms all weekend. Who ticked Mother Nature off??

    Yes, the forecast for Bracken County shows thunderstorms firing up mid-morning on Saturday and lasting until after dark. Sunday shows rain clear through until Monday.

    My advice is to rig for heavy rain and go for it. Keep an eye on the radar and be ready to seek shelter. I've got a luxury deer blind about 300 yards from where I plan on starting out Saturday. I'll go there as the rain approaches. There are three old trees close by my turkey blind that all show signs of lightning strikes. They are all on the same fenceline. The last one got hit two years ago.

    Guys! I've found a fix for our weather troubles. You know weather underground, right? Well, one of the things I've noticed is that it gives me a forecast for different weather stations, depending where I am on the property. When I'm sitting on the front porch, it tells me I'm in Berry, KY. When I am on the back of the house, it tells me I'm in Brooksville, KY. When I'm out on the property, it'll tell me I'm in Foster, Milford, Falmouth. You never really know.

    So here's what I figgered out: If I don't like the forecast where I am, I just change positions around the house and then refresh the wunderground app. I just went from the back of he house (telling me I was in Foster) to the front (switched to Berry) and I got two whole extra hours of hunting before the thunderstorms hit on Saturday.

    Yippeee!

    Not in my neck of the woods. The first 2 weekends, at least, were good.

    I remember it being cool close to cold some mornings but I thought it was nice too? I killed my only one last weekend in April mid morning and it was sunny and low 60s I believe. Dad killed opening morning and it was pretty nice. I’m in N Central KY.
     
  8. No one has mentioned to check the tree you're going to set up on. Check the limbs above your tree. I had big limb blow down on an ash i always set up on. Check above your head!!!

    I’ll be out there unless its thunder/lightning. Can’t kill’em from the couch. The state won’t refund me any “bad weather days” and I sure don’t want to eat any more tag sandwich’s lol

    I just think high wind is the worst condition to hunt in . my opinion weather. App is saying gusts from 20 to 30.

    I’m with you can’t stand deer or turkey hunting in high winds! Never have a lot of luck either.
