You have my deepest sympathy on that issue. I don't think I could live in the South zone for that reason. Alabama's North Zone always starts in September. Used to start in mid September. Last year it opened at the beginning and a lot of crops were still in the field. Give me a holler next year and we'll find you a place up here.
Your right...ALOT of the crops were still in the ground in Georgia to..due to the rain...were even harvesting late here due to rain......
I appreciate the invite...DON'T BE SURPRISED if you get a message about August from me
.....AND....If you quail hunt...I might can return the favor...I am going to be training my Brittany for quail this fall(she will be (7)sevem months when the season opens)
...BUT...She is going to be on birds EVERY WEEKEND and some during the week , so hopefully she will develop quickly!
