Headed out

Chief ShawayChief Shaway Member, Moderator Posts: 6,199 ******
Tomorrow evening for OPENING DAY!
I'm really not wanting to shoot anything, just spend some time in the woods.
I do my own butchering so shooting means lots of work. Last year I didn't get home til 10:30 from butchering my opening night 8 point. It made a long day at work the next day.
That being said, A nice doe will not be getting a free pass. I'll just take Wednesday off.[;)]

    I'm with you. I'd like to go out in the morning, but I'll wait until after work. Same problem. Too hot to hang, so shooting something means a long night to get it into the fridge. But, I'm up for the challenge.
    I'm going up to the farm near Galena for the weekend. We've seen some nice bucks on camera already up there. Fingers crossed for a good opening week.

    Good Luck!

    2 doe. That's it. I had them within 20 yards for 1/2 hour. Tempted me. I'm headed 3 hours north Friday. Hopefully a little cooler up there. Suppose to get some rain but that's ok. Food plot came in nice this year. Deer are hitting it hard. Hopefully I will have some action.

    I'm in New York. Hudson Valley area. Im headed up to the Finger Lakes area, just outside of Ithaca. I have 50 acres there. My dad bought it in the early 70's. They have a special 5 year pilot program up there. Every registered hunter can shoot 2 anterless deer per day, everyday from Oct. 1 - Jan. 31. I didn't do the math but thats a whole lot of backstrap.

    For some reason I was thinking you are in Illinois. New York, kind of a toss up I guess.[:D] How'd you do?
