    October 1st is our opener. Every year I take a week or two vacation then but this year I think Im only going to take a day or two and save my time for later in October/ November. It cools here in September then about October 1st its back up into the high 80's/90's for two weeks. GOOD LUCK

    First saturday in October here. Its hard to get pumped up for the opener because its always hot. I usually hit the first 2 hours and then the evening hunt usually doesnt start till about 730 or 8 pm. I'll save my vacation for the first week in november:wink:.

    Our season opens up october 1'st. I've been stoked about it for a couple of months. At least until yesterday. I have been waiting for the doctor to schedule a knee surgery. She called me yesterday and told me it was scheduled for oct. 1'st at 7:00 a.m. Grrrrrrrr. I'll miss at least the first few weeks of hunting !!:eek:oooh:

    Sept 15 is our opener here in Missouri. Just bought a new sight and rubber boots and my food plots got a good drink of water yesterday so I'm ready to start whacking and stacking the backstraps. :smile2:

    i went out yesterday morning, hunted from about an hour before daylight till 10:15-10:30am. I saw a Little 8pt, 3 does all in the first 30-45 min of day light. it started getting really humid and a little to warm about 900am so i sat it out for just a little longer and called it quits. i didnt get to hunt last evening or today, but ill be out there the rest of the week, the good lord willing. not a bad first day all things considered. that little 8 pt will be a nice deer next year if it lives through gun season.

    Opening day of Archery season in Nebraska starts on Sept. 15. Usually I don't get to excited until mid October or when the Pre-Rut starts kicking in. Still need to hang stands! Hoping this weekend I will get them hung. Got some new property to hunt this year, so I'm stoked. Can ya say BBD?:wink:

    I think it would be nice if PA opened even for just a week in September instead of the first saturday in October. It seems like that first weekend is exactly when the beans start turning and the deer start switching from summer patterns to fall patterns. It seems like you can almost set your watch by the patterns of the deer in August and September around here. Oh well, its still too hot to be archery hunting anyway. Good luck all you guys that are getting out there.
