Leaving for camp in 3A shortly. Not a chance I'm missing opening day, no matter how much the change annoys me. Good luck to all.

Maybe we could blame the WWII/Korean War generations for getting old and passing away, for the huge decline in hunters, while we're at it? Or their offspring, who are now sliding into their 70s?
