It is too early to tell anything about the Saturday opener as a whole. All we have to go on is anecdotal evidence. Until we get some participation estimates from the PGC, license sale numbers, harvest data etc.... it is all personal perception at this point.
Peoples experiences can vary wildly depending on where they were hunting. I have seen folks say they saw huge participation, some say they saw less, and some saying no difference.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
