This week on Carnivore, I will be hunting by myself in South Texas as no one wanted to tag along in this heat. I am hunting a ranch that I have hunted through the years and at one time had more coyotes than any place I have ever seen. Trapping, snaring and aerial gunning has greatly reduced he population so I am looking hard for sign. I finally manage to find a few critters that were willing to come to the call. Hope if you have a chance that you will tune in.
Adios,
Gary

According to the stats, its not hotter than all my previous years but I sure am taking it harder. Getting old aint for the faint of heart.

I worked several hours in it yesterday fixing a protein feeder. I was in the shade and I did drink several beers well spaced during those several hours. I felt ok but stunk up the joint afterwards. I slept well last night...

I'm not going to complain about the heat, nor my ability (or inability) to handle it. Not while one American sailor, soldier, airman or Marine is still over in the sandbox.

Loc: Fort Worth - Hunt in Eastland ...
I'm going to try to brushhog a foodplot Saturday. Suppose to be a break in the weather and only get to 89. But start raining by noon in Eastland. Going to have to go early and get started. If I can't get it done the next opportunity for me is labor day weekend.

Heat here has been above average this year, especially the heat index or "feel like" temperature. Not only have we had 100 to 102 or 103, the feel like has been an aver of three degrees above that. I guess that has to do with humidity but not sure how we are getting any of that as it has not rained at my house since the some time in June. All of that is supposed to change this weekend and I pray that it does. Yeah, this global warming is killing me...
Adios,
Gary
