In December, we all had hopes that early January would bring birds.  So far, that is not looking like it will happen.  Averages are in the 1.0 to 1.25 bird range.  In your opinion, is there still hope for this season?  A high pressure system in Utah and warm weather is not helping.  Klamath still does not have temperatures in the teens. 

 

Should we just man up and accept that the 2017/2018 season sucked big time for us in Socal. 

 

Any prognostications?

Maybe this storm will push some down?  I guess it's a good year for not drawing much.  I'll be at Wister this Saturday with my only ressi drawn.

I love gray skies, so I can see birds, and it drops the temps from 90 to 80............ :smiley-ugly-lol-bashing-sign:
