Opening Day 2017

Postby Ohio3Wheels » 28 Nov 2017 17

I don't often go out opening day, too many amateurs but after debating with self for a while and getting some errands run I grabbed the Wizard and went out to the closest public area. Walking path through the woods is bisected by a power line cut where I've seen the occasional deer. I eased into the cut and spotted the south end of a north bound deer about 60 yards away and accelerating. No shot at all. Nicest opening day we've had in a while, upper 40s and clear so no complaints. Stuff needed doing today so no chance tomorrow, the 45 Colt 92 and a different area.

Good luck! Our season started on the first Saturday of November, Antlerless on the last Saturday of September. I've been in a stand on a regular basis but nothing meeting what I'm looking for.
