The upside is that, if your area received a lot of rain over the last week like many areas did, the soil has absorbed a lot of water. The surface may dry out and form a crust, but I don't think root-zone soil moisture will be a problem for some time.

Sure am glad I planted 8/25-26th! We have had over 2 1/4 inches of rain since planted. Some more on the way friday evening - saturday morning. Should be rockin to kill a doe on opening weekend! Might try to find a white oak dropping close to some thickets for an older deer. All depends on my time availability

I understand everyone's concern, but it seems like a person kinda has to take a chance when planting a plot. Similar to planting a vegetable garden. Folks who planted plots and gardens long before the availability of extended forecasts did also. We can't change the weather and I know everyone wants to plant at the perfect time and all. I'd say don't wait, like BSK says, plant now.

I put mine out on Aug 29 and its just started to sprout. I walked down there today and there were 3 fat cottontail rabbits eating their fill.
