Florida's busiest hurricane months?

Post by rsobczak »

Can you guess the two months
that account for two-thirds
of the storms that make landfall
in Florida at hurricane strength?

a. October and September
b. September and August
c. July and August
d. February and March
e. June and September

"Hurricane Strength" makes me think this is a trick question and I have trouble keeping track of months these days.

I do know the right answer is Huntin season :D

We get the wettest storms during Archery and Muzzleloader seasons, good for the deer huntin, but they suck when you been holding that last gator tag for a big one. Usually by dog hunt season, things have settled down :cheers:

Years ago my wife and I got called in for a parent teacher conference with my son's elementary teacher. She told us that the boy couldn't read, we needed to get him in a special program. I asked her to show me what he was supposed to be reading and she showed me. I laughed, told her he might act like he is reading that crap, but he wasn't going to remember any of it, he wasn't interested. The next day I brought her the latest edition of Florida Sportsman and asked her to test him on that.

I never heard any more on that issue.
I still think I-10 is the Mason Dixon line.

P.S., Muzzleloader is the wettest, before the rains set in I go to town and buy a fresh magnum 3 pack. Don't want an old one bustin on yah and gettin the powder wet.

That made me laugh, because when I first read that, I thought the same thing.

In all fairness to Rob, it appears he his really only half dyslexic, as options C & D are ordered as you'd expect. :)

I black powder hunted Bear Island Big Cypress for 9 wonderful years.
A miracle in itself that I was ever able to get a dry shot off LOL!
And I kept hip waders on the buggy there as it was typical to go through 3'-4' water crossings to get to the tree stand, (after getting the buggy through the 5'-6' deep wash out on the grade into camp).

Good luck with your hunt! :thumbleft:
Don't waste your time-its the only thing you can't get back, (Cntry141IQ/John had another thousand of these before he went sliding into the sky). :-(
