Good luck to everyone this season. Our opener here in Georgia is September 8th and I'm getting anxious. Have fun and most importantly be safe.

It's gonna be too hot here but I will still be in a tree or blind in the evenings, not much movement in mornings yet.

If I waited until actual archery season, then it would be five weeks from tomorrow in Northern VA. But I can use my crossbow during the early anterless-only gun season that starts tomorrow. I'll be packing the boom stick tomorrow since I just completed defrosting the freezer and it is freshly empty and ready for service. I have the perfect place for the first thing that comes by without antlers or spots. I'm just hoping to stay dry, hydrated and not feed to many mosquitoes. It'll be mornings only this weekend. The afternoons will be well into the 80's which may limit movement.

Good luck to everyone this season. Be safe out there!

I just looked at the long range weather forecast for where I hunt (N.E. Missouri) and on our opening day (Sept 15) it projects a low of 45 and a high of 67. That will change many times before the day arrives but it would be an extraordinarily cool opener for us. Most of my preparation is done and I'll be out there 2 weeks from today.

Good luck to everybody and be safe!
