Is the May first date a hard and fast rule for rock hunting?
It is for me. Rockhunts in May are pretty hot, and there’s absolutely no shade of any kind on the ranches. I’m no longer able to tolerate the heat as well as I did 10 years ago, and I don’t want to take chances with my health or yours. It’s possible in the future that I will be turning my rockhunts over to someone else, and the new field trip leader may have different feelings about hunting in the heat. Then all they’ll have to do is convince the landowners to go along. So stay tuned!
