This is the rainiest season I've seen since I started hunting Colorado in 2007! Not the one time flooding rains like in 2013 I think it was but the everyday1-5hr type. I've really invested in high end gear the last couple of years but never bothered upping the ante on rain gear because it mostly just gets worn for warmth versus actual rain, but I think high end rain jacket is next on my gear list. Don't know if the whole state is like that, but sure know my unit is!

Super hot and dry in my unit this entire weekend. Had one small spat of rain that lasted about 10 minutes then gone! North central Co.

Rain? Rain gear? Not where I've been at. Hot & Dryer than a popcorn fart for the past 3 weeks. Streams are threads of water.

N Central Colorado

I've gotten snowed on twice so far and rain just about every trip scouting/hunting bighorns this fall. I'd play it safe and bring your best raingear if you are heading to Colo!

Showing a good chance of some rain almost every day next week where we hunt.

I hope it rains like hell Wed and Thur this week then goes to a mild all-day rain the entire weekend. I'd really like to get a buck this year and my deer area was ridiculously dry when I hunted it on the opener. If I could stalk without sounding like I'm walking on bubble wrap I'd have a much better chance!

So far I haven't seen any rain this hunting season. :(

Raingear? You planning on jumping in the creek? I'll say the amount of grass is unbelievable, but the last 3 weeks have been dry dry dry.
