Hope you like mosquitoes!!!!
Based on what we are seeing here in Central Putnam County it is a fair bet that the mosquito population available at about the time spring turkey starts will be off the charts. The last 10 days or so the little guys have been slowly ramping up. Yesterday while working on fire breaks( more like canals right now!! ) there was the occasional during the day.
And then about sunset I was out checking a recently planted stand of trees, in the wide open, and they ramped up out in the field. That is not a good sign.
This is especially true as it seems the long range forecast of a "Dry Spring" is going to be very hard pressed to materialize. Got 4 possible rain days in the short term forecast starting Saturday, and with the groundwater backed up as it is, all the lakes in the Keystone area are at levels not seen in decades!!!, it will take the trees leaving out and starting to suck water to really dry things.
