Just thought I'd share a website that I've found to be very handy to monitor precipitation at our ranch. Climate.com has a program called FieldView that allows you to receive email reports anytime your farm/ranch/lease gets precipitation. I've been comparing the reports it sends versus what our rain gage shows, and find that it's typically within a tenth or two of being spot on. It's simple to use and allows you to mark your exact pastures on a satellite image (multiple if you want). Anytime one of your marked plots gets rain, an email get's sent, and you know what happened over the previous 24 hours. Very handy info if you're planning a lease trip, but not sure if rain made the roads impassable. Or if you are timing a food plot to be planted or fertilized. I know you can get similar info off of weather.com and other sites, but rain that hits the nearest city can completely miss your lease outside of town (and visa versa).


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

All you have supplied is accurate!!! Been using it for 2 years and have found it quite good and informative.

I have been using Farmlogs.com which is very similar. I don't know that it has the mobile app aspect, however. I now have both up and running and it will be interesting to see how they compare.

Not sure anything is really accurate other than looking at a rain gauge on the specific property. I have a place just South of Bowie with a rain gauge. A guy 1/4 mile away has a weather station. Two other guys that I know have rain gauges. All are in sort of a straight line about a mile apart. None of us agree on amounts.

We've got rain gauges all over the ranch, it's surprising how different the readings are just a couple of hundred yards away. The type of rain gauge makes a difference also. When it's coming straight down just about any gauge is accurate, add wind to the equation and you change the angle and decrease the opening by exposing less to the rain. Not long ago we had a good storm come in with allot of wind. My straight sided dog pool (4'x4') showed an inch and 3/10ths, my gauge that's about 8 ft away showed just under 3/4".


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.
