In the bed up at 430, heading in around 545-600



O God, thank you for your creation,

for the land that sustains us,

the game that feeds us,

and the hunt that blesses us.

Grant us wisdom to be safe.

Grant us the patience for a clean shot,

so that we might be good stewards of every life you give.

Amen.

Good luck to all on the opener

Ready to go, but not very optimistic. There are two huge road-kill bucks within a half mile of my stand. Hope there's at least one more that walks by me.

Good luck to all, and stay safe.

Got out at 6:45 seen 1 kitty cat so far. Heard about 20 shots way off in the distance.
Don't seem like anyone moving haven't seen any other hunters.

I should have stayed in bed lol. I've got 4 guys within 150 yards of me. At this point I'm pretty much just hanging out and listening for gun shots to gauge how Archery season will be next year. Im not gonna see squat. Good luck to everyone else though.

Got lucky with a nice eight point at 6:55. Just sitting here enjoying the moment and the beautiful morning.

Took an hour and fifteen minutes to walk up the mountain this morning but all worth it.

Good Luck to everyone out there.

UGH bad luck again. Last 3 weeks of archery were a total bust. Only chance I had was a small 8 point who snuck up behind me and busted me. So this morning only thing I saw was the the same buck lol. He came along the top of the ridge where my backdrop was houses and rt.100 and he busted me before he got in a good shooting position. As far as shooting , almost nothing. One shot near daybreak about 1/2 mile south, and a volley around daybreak north of me in 4C. Always amazed me how little shooting there is around here in gun season and there are deer everywhere. Oh well back at the house, I'm in thick cover and the sun makes it impossible to see, I need a brimmed hat. Came back up to get one and the wife is making me some eggs. Wanna get back down around 9:30 since 90% of the daytime activity I see on my cameras is midday here. Good luck to everyone and be SAFE.

I tagged out in archery but still had to be in the woods for the first day. Took a walk on a 4a gamelands. Just off the trail and sat down. Lots of shooting going on in the distance. Hoping my dad and nephew score today.
