    Default Oklahoma Drought

    Biologist say that Drought is a natural part of plains ecology and plays a role in the boom seasons for quail hunters.

    Much like fire, searing drought can serve as a cleansing or disturbing agent, burning away thick perennial ground vegetation that chokes out annual forbs and inhibits quail movement and foraging.

    So far, 40+ day's of temps above 100 degrees, 15" short on rainfall this year. It's going to be a miserable year.

    And the drought continues to get worse.

    That is ugly guys! Some national weather folks are suggesting you may get some rain from the tropical storm "Don." It is said to be carrying a lot of moisture, but who knows where that moisture will fall. If it moves slow they say, those who get rain will get quite a bit.

    Let's hope it happens for you.

    On a hot, dusty day a cowboy rode into a small frontier town. After dismounting, he walked behind his horse, lifted it's tail and kissed it where the sun don't shine. An old man rocking by the general store witnessed the whole thing.

    "Whudd'ya do that fer?" he asked.

    "Got chapped lips," the cowboy replied.

    The old man asked, "Does that help?"

    The cowboy said, "Nope, but it keeps me from lickin' 'em
