    The weekly thursday evening trapshoot at Lakelands Conservation,Stony Ridge,Ohio is cancelled tonight. The Shooters agreed,it just doesn't make good sense to shoot in 97 degree weather. Its too dangerous and not fun. Clyde

    One of my first trap shoots years ago in Fargo ND, 104 deg. in the shade. Shot a 97 in short to mid yardage and won a Scout commemerative 94-.22. The hotter the weather the better IMHO.

    Yes, standing still while holding a 9-pound shotgun in 97 degree weather is exceedingly dangerous! Manly men up there at Lakelands!

    What a bunch of fruitcakes people have become, LOL.

    We have a foundry where I work and the older guys worked in it for 40+ years. You know what we call 97 degrees?

    Winter.

    If you're 80 and feeble, or weigh 400 pounds, yes, stay home.

    Never seen any sporting event called off from heat. Well maybe ice hockey.

    The Humidity has a lot to do with high temps. High humid days are more dangerous if the wind is not moving.

    Correct -- never stand still holding a 9-pound shotgun when the humidity is high. Very dangerous.
