Any of you guys farmers almanac believers? What’s it say for this fall? I have an opportunity to drain one of my holes and plant some millet, my buddy is worried about it potentially not filling back up. Looking for some insight.

I am definitely NOT a believer in it.

As a duck hunter I'm hoping for a dry year - my best seasons are always drought years.

As someone who grows grass and livestock - rain baby rain.

I've got a stock tank that has silted and needs to be dug out (it's about 8' deep right now - should be 12') - I 100% will not touch it until Jan or Feb. No way you could pay me to drain it and count on it filling back up any time soon. Gonna be a rough (dry) late summer/fall I do believe. Generally comes with a La Nina - which is looking likely.

As cochise stated I dont believe in it either. But my gut is telling me it will be warm and dry as well.

I'm not a beleiver.

I prefer hunting dry years more than wet. I'd go so far as to say hunting was much, much easier until the drought broke several years ago. Now, I have to put in more time and effort scouting.
