That's a lot of shooting. Good luck.

Our rifle opened today and I've heard one shot!

But it's because we have no deer so nobody move here...

Was out for 4 hours and taking a warm up break. Only half a dozen shots near us. We so no deer in our two stands. Deer are not moving nore are the hunters. Don't see many cars or hunters at 11 AM. Going back at 3 PM. Not going out getting cold when the deer are not moving. Tomorrow less wind and colder. Lots of turkeys foraging the morning.

I sat til 930, then had to warm up. Heard some shooting around, not a whole lot, but enough. It quit at 730 though, no shots since. Saw 1 doe in thick cover, she winded me. Going back out around 2. One of these years I will figure out how to keep my feet warm.

Seriously
Lacrosse Ice man boots , one size larger than your shoe size.
ALSO...a small handwarmer in each boot toe.

It use to be that way around here. Now maybe heard a dozen shots on opening morning. Today is the second saturday of gun season and my buddy who was hunting texted me and said he didn't hear a single shot all morning.

I had to run to the local home store early afternoon, almost hit 1/2 doz Does as they wanted to cross the road in front of me.
As far as staying warm I went to St. Vinnies and bought a used sleeping bag.
Got inside that thing, sorel boots and all and pulled it up to my armpits then sat down.
Put my gloved hands into an old fashioned muff.
I could sit all day that way.

Been pretty quiet around here, neighbors to the east are the only property owners near me that hunt.

When I lived in OH back I used to count shots the whole season.
One year before 9 am on opening day I counted over 500 shots

The afternoon was really windy but our son shot a doe. He missed a fork an hour before. I saw one tail. Quite a bit of standing corn near us.

One nice small 8 point good deer for public land in our group today shot at 8:30. Woods was overall very quiet as far as gun shots heard. The weather ran from very mostly windy had 45 minute snow squall could barely see 20 yards. I saw 7 deer that best I could tell all does. I tried to find one I use my meat tag on. Just couldn't line anything up. So just the one deer shot in our group of 5.

I sat all day. I love my box blind as long as your out the wind you got It made. Saw 9 deer none of them provided me with a decent shot.
With the big winds we had today the deer were all hanging out In the creek bottom. I'll be down there tommrow.
No shooting at all around our land. We are surrounded with standing corn and that's going to save a lot of deer this year.

Didn't get out today, but didn't hear a single shot all day and we border the county forest. Only 5 trucks parked in the parking area, no drag marks either when I checked at 3:30 this afternoon after coming back from town. Not many hunting parties up like in the old days.

My son's friend texted a picture of nice buck he got this afternoon back home.

I shot a doe about noon and saw a few more. For whatever reason they started moving about noon. There weren't many shots around me though and not many hunters out when I headed for home about 1:30.
