Long Range Forcast

Here's the projected forcast for the winter... Looks like they are saying a cold and slightly wetter winter. All I know is we need some of that cold now... and the wetter part too. As of this week, all my duck holes are DRY! Havn't seen it this bad in a very long time.

We still have some time. Not much, but some. The bad part is if we don't get some rain/cooler weather soon all the crops except winter wheat will die! I have a few spots I'm sure I get birds, but it's all late season. So early season may be a bust! I'm trying to keep the faith though. Time will tell.

They are talking about baling the corn and beans for animal feed right now round these parts. Seeing parts of the river I haven't seen in several years. Pray for rain.

We'll get rain right around the start of Dove season to screw it up. We always do. Then they wont congregate at watering holes but instead water wherever they want.

Which part of the State is having the historic drought? The Southern Part?

1. Lovewell - a few feet high and letting out water. (north central KS)
2. Glen Elder - a few feet high and letting out water (Central/West KS)
3. Norton and Cedar Bluff - Still quite low (Has been low for years but not lower than the past few years)
5. Milford - very high. Campgrounds closed (Central KS)
6. Perry - about 4 feet high (Eastern KS)

A good portion of the state has higher than normal water levels.

Pretty much draw a line from I-70 south and 75 HWY west. SW to SC Kansas are the driest in case you haven't seen the news about water restrictions, lost crops, etc.

Quivira -Dry
Bottoms- Dry (little water in pool 1 but the intake waterways are bone dry)
Redmond- Abnormally dry (not quite drought) They lowered the level to 1037 to allow work on the tainter gates. It doesn't look that bad when you see the levels, but it is really low without a chance or refill.
Mcpherson Valley- Dry

Heck my yard could be burned off right now and they are picking up grass fires in the surrounding area. The extension agent today said that the majority of the corn crop is beyond saving here in East Central KS.

LOL! How much did you guys get? We've been getting tiny showers every once in awhile here, but nothing serious.

not sure but it was a good soaker, it rained most of the night. How I judge rain is if I have to wipe my dogs feet after letting them outside to go to the bathroom, I had to wipe thier feet this am, and we have it in the forecast as well today! :hammer: :hammer: :hammer: :hammer:

3" at my house. Lots of wind damage though. I'll be running a chainsaw for the after work. Glad to have the rain.

Was it to late to save the crops or just in time? I have heard about a lot of bad things going on in you neck of the woods.

Too late for the corn. Alot of it will get rolled for silage.

It will be real darn close for their beans.

Haymeadows needed it. They might be able to get another cutting. Hay is big business this year.

Talked to one of the farmers we hunt on tonight at the gas station. His house is about 2 miles west of my house. They got .03" of rain. When I asked him if this would help his beans he said they are done. Rain stopped about a mile west of town. All the corn of his that is east of town down in the bottoms has some wind damage. Anything along the North or East edge of the field was bent over pretty good when I actually got to see it in the light this evening. I am still thankful for the rain we got.

Drove through the Cheyenne Bottoms Saturday evening. Very bad.
Called Quivera yesterday. Bone dry.

Less than 1" of rain in the last three weeks at my house, slightly more near CB. Not enough to even green-up the grass, let alone start filling the lowlands. I am not optimistic about the waterfowl season this year, not without lots of rain, very soon.

Corn is pretty much fried here, beans are following suit right behind them. the beans are still trying to bloom but if we dont get any rain within a week, id say they arent gonna amount to much. All of the hay is ,on average, is a 2/3 of of what it normally is as far as yield goes. ready for cooler weather!!!

Well all isnt bad, Tuttle Creek Lake is about 15 ft high still. With alot of scouting on the north end people should do alright this season, finding nice little pockets to hunt in.

We just got about an 1 1/2" of rain in the Manhattan area over night which will help bring everything back to life, if its not already too late.

its kinda amazing on the corn because it looks like it is fried and done but there is acctually some pretty good ear's of corn over where I live at. The farmer cut some of it for silage but alot he left which is good because its pretty decent corn really for how it looks.

Was he leaving 3-4 row strips or just a big part of the field?
